UPDATE: On Wednesday, Dan Coats was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to head the Department of Intelligence by a 85-12 vote. But we still have time to stop Trump's other climate-denying pick for Agriculture Secretary: Sonny Perdue.
We know how important it is for our government to acknowledge and boldly address climate pollution. Climate denial is immoral and un-American. Sadly, not a single U.S. Senator has opposed all of Trump’s science-denying nominees. That means we have to take a stand.
Tell your Senators to vote NO on climate-denying Sonny Perdue for Secretary of Agriculture.
Sonny Perdue’s business dealings mirror those of our president. He has a tangled web of investments and interests in agri-business. As governor of Georgia, climate-denying Perdue made headlines by suggesting Georgians pray for rain during a record-breaking drought, all while denying the cause of such extreme weather events. Perdue has since called climate activism, “a running joke.”
