Climate Change-Denying Republicans Admit They’re No Scientists, So Why Are They 100% Sure That 97% of the Scientific Community Is Wrong?

Washington DC (June 4, 2014) – In support of the President’s bold new climate change action plan that will cut significantly down carbon pollution, save lives and help the economy, Americans United for Change released a new video today called ‘Not A Scientist’ that says it all about how the climate denier culture is thriving like pine beetles in the Republican Party. The video features numerous potential Presidential candidates down the line to Members of Congress all preaching from the same climate skeptic hymnal, all refusing to acknowledge overwhelming scientific data that climate change is happening and is man-made. But while their head-in-the-sand position has become a litmus test for who’s a real Republican or not, a new PPP poll commissioned by AUFC released yesterday shows it will alienate Independent voters in the coming elections, with only 29% open to supporting a climate skeptic.
Jeremy Funk, Comm. Dir., Americans United for Change: “The GOP’s new talking point when challenged on climate change is ‘I’m no scientist’, and yet they remain 100% certain as that 97% of the scientific community is pulling a fast one on us all for no explicable reason. Could it be because Big Oil and the pollution-profiting Koch brothers have given Republicans tens of millions of reasons to feign or maintain ignorance to the detriment of our environment, health and national security?”
