#StopClovisDemand Senators Oppose Trump's Pick for the USDA's Chief Scientist

The Department of Agriculture is on the front lines of the climate crisis. Trump has appointed Sam Clovis as its chief scientist. But Clovis is a racist climate denier, not a scientist.

Clovis has an ugly history of racist and anti-science rants. In a 2011 blog post, Clovis called progressives “race traitors.” Just months before, he criticized Hurricane Katrina survivors, attributing their hardships to a “cultural” failure. Like Trump, he believes climate change is "junk science."

We can’t have a bush-league Rush Limbaugh leading the USDA’s science programs.

Add your name to call on all Senators: "Strongly oppose Sam Clovis's confirmation as the U.S. Under Secretary of Agriculture for Research, Education, and Economics."

    One Earth is all we have. Let’s skip the debate, and do ALL we can to change this, regardless of the causes! If man is or is not contributing to it, man can, hopefully, fix it, however, the time to act is NOW.
