Target: Paul Ryan
Goal: Get Paul Ryan to stop denying global warming and support climate science
Despite a plethora of proven climate science showing that human development has had a dramatic impact on the state of the environment, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan continues to deny global warming and its impact on the planet. Throughout the next decade, we will begin to see the irreversible damage that man has had on the environment, and it is imperative that we act to protect the environment and move toward clean energy, not away from it.
While Ryan’s denial of man-made factors of climate change is worrying, his application of these beliefs in his policy agenda is much more troubling. Ryan has a history of voting against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) when it comes to limiting greenhouse gases and pollutants. He also has voted against the White House climate advisory, and even voted to prevent the Department of Agriculture from preparing for climate disasters like drought and flooding. His budget plans include cutting funding to energy research and development for wind, solar, and other alternative energy sources.
Paul Ryan’s anti-climate science statements and policy are deeply troubling, especially considering his potential to be only a heartbeat away from the presidency come January. Sign this petition and tell Paul Ryan to stop denying global warming and support current climate science that shows mans impact on the state of the environment.
Dear Congressman Ryan,
Despite a plethora of proven climate science showing that human development has had a dramatic impact on the state of the environment, you still argue for a policy agenda that is anti-green energy and will continue to destroy forests and ecosystems. While the denial of climate change is worrying in and of itself, the impact it has on your policy decisions is much more troubling, especially in regards to your elimination of the White House climate advisers and your vote that served to block the Department of Agriculture from preparing for climate disasters.
The next decade will be a determining factor in the health of the planet for centuries to come. That is why we are writing today to urge you to stop denying global warming and support climate science and green energy as policy initiatives.
