Politicians with hidden agendas are nothing new. But you need to know about their latest trick. They must be stopped.
Climate deniers and their corporate cronies are hiding their destructive and dangerous plans inside overlooked spending bills — ones with poisonous provisions that seek to strip some of our most essential agencies of the ability to protect our health, monitor our atmosphere, and save our environment.
In just the next few days and weeks, our representatives in Congress will consider funding bills loaded up with riders that would:
- Strip tens of millions of dollars from NASA and NOAA, all because climate and ocean research are deemed a “lower priority”
- Defund the EPA and Department of the Interior in order to halt progress on the Clean Power Plan, methane limits, and crucial ozone health standards
- Block the EPA from regulating dangerous greenhouse gases from our coal plants and oil and gas operations, raising the threat of runaway climate change
We cannot allow our representatives to allow a historically dysfunctional and ineffective Congress to threaten our children’s health. While our climate warms and our children and grandchildren suffer, politicians ignore climate science all while hiding their actions behind spending bills.
