Stop Republicans From Lying About Climate Change


Target: Speaker of the House John Boehner

Goal: Stop denying the clear scientific evidence of human-caused climate change.

The Republican Party spends a lot of time denying what we all know: the Earth’s climate is changing, and humans are contributing to that change. Recently, they went so far as to edit President Obama’s 2015 State of the Union address to remove criticisms of their stance on climate change.

Republicans regularly claim that they “aren’t scientists” and use that as an excuse to ignore the overwhelming evidence of climate change. When President Obama criticized this attitude, House Republicans cut it out of the video of the State of the Union address which they posted on their website. They even went so far as to call it an “enhanced webcast.” Then, when asked to comment about it, they said the edits were “unintentional” and blamed YouTube for them.

Doctoring a video of the State of the Union address, which was seen live and unedited by millions of Americans, is a gross betrayal of the American people. It couldn’t be more obvious that Republicans are lying about climate change, and that they think Americans are too stupid to realize it. It’s obvious that House Republicans are more worried about lining their own pockets with money from oil, coal, and gas companies than they are about preserving the Earth or even serving the American people.

By signing this petition, you will help to urge the Republican Party to reconsider their dangerous stance on climate change, and to fess up to their continued efforts to mislead the American public.


Dear Speaker of the House John Boehner,

The Republican Party’s obvious attempts to mislead the American public need to stop. Climate change is a very real global problem, which is made worse by human activity. Republican officials continuing to feign ignorance does not serve the American people, and the attempts to mislead voters shows just how little the GOP cares about them.

The recent attempts to edit President Obama’s comments about Republican denial of climate change during his State of the Union address were cowardly and blatant. The address was watched live by millions of people, and instead of addressing the very real concerns about climate change that the President raised, House Republicans decided to edit them out, and did so poorly at that. It was an insult to President Obama, and an insult to the American public.

I am urging you to take a stand for the citizens of the United States of America, and the citizens of the world, and work with the President, Democrats, scientists, and concerned citizens throughout the nation to fight climate change. Stop embracing climate change denial, and start working to fix the problem.

  1. First, lets stop democrates from their daily propaganda. I am not a democrate or a republican. They are all liars, but the dems seem to try to use petitions and these organizations as free political outlets. I cannot believe these ’causes’ organizations promote ANY political petition. I will NOT sign any political petition because they are all criminals and none can be trusted.

  2. Good luck in stopping these idiots from lying about anything, especially if it might upset their super rich owners. It doesn’t even seem to bother them that we are in serious danger of ending life on Earth. And to call this a “political” issue is ridiculous; it’s simply science vs deniers. And no, I don’t claim it is only the GOP. Actually our two party system is horrible; way too easy to buy enough from each party to run everything.

  3. Michael Guest says:

    The facts of climate change and global warming are not deniable. Republicans need to stop playing political games and take action on preserving the planet from greenhouse effects.

  4. Cimate change is happening the idiots in parliment must do something about it instead of lining their pockets with money There is only one earth and we need to care for it not destroy it

  5. “The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future – deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities and the spread of disease.” – The World Watch Institute
