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."
