VOTE “NO” ON ANTI-CLIMATE-SCIENCE “HONEST” ACT
Here is what is happening. The GOP has figured out that our grassroots phone call campaigns work. That is why they are working at lightning speed to move onerous bills out of committee to full votes. They think we can’t possibly keep up with their pace. Today, there is yet another crucial floor vote—on the deceptively-named HR 1430 “Honest Act” http://bit.ly/2nfpE3l
LET’S PROVE THEM WRONG!
–HR 1430 PROHIBITS the EPA from using science that is “not transparent or reproducible.” This is a back door assault on climate science, since collecting data on global patterns and events is not “reproducible” in the lab, and the reams of raw data are often not in published form.
–A similar bill entitled “The Science Advisory Board Reform Act” or HR 1431, may also be voted on this week http://bit.ly/2nhbWxM
–Acting in concert, Trump signed an executive order yesterday directing the EPA to rescind the 2013 Climate Action Plan http://theatln.tc/2nJ1h1Q. Rep Bonamici’s response: http://bit.ly/2nz0CzK
ACTION: CALL Congressman Walden
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am outraged by current House efforts to sabotage the EPA’s mission to protect Americans from the desire of the fossil fuel industry to maximize profit, even if it means destroying our planet for future generations. I am calling on Representative Walden to vote NO on the anti-climate science bills HR 1430 and HR 1431. If he votes yes, I will interpret that as a sign that he is willing to throw away the future of our children and grandchildren to line the pockets of fossil fuel CEO’s. Please make sure these bills end in the House!
JUST AS IMPORTANT: CALL, TEXT, AND EMAIL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN RED DISTRICTS TO DO THE SAME. “SHARE” OR COPY / PASTE THIS ACTION!
