Denial for Dollars
After 341 straight months of warmer-than-average global temperatures, 55 percent of Republicans in the 113th Congress still deny climate change. Among the party’s leadership, 90 percent are deniers. Whether it’s cause or effect, large donations from the dirty energy industry flow accordingly. Think Progress maintains an up-to-date rundown of the deniers and their donations at thinkprogress.org/climate-denier-caucus.
