WHY: Rep. Flores may now object to "climate denier" classification, although his statements and record prove him to be one. He referred to climate change as "dubious agenda-driven scientific research."
- Flores supports fossil fuels over renewable energy, and worked in the fossil fuel industry.
- Flores has voted against every bill designed to address climate change.
- Flores has a 4% positive voting record by the League of Conservation Voters.
- Flores has been a large part of the recent do nothing Congresses which have blocked any significant legislation to combat climate change.
- We must call out Rep. Flores for his record which endangers our future at the time of this climate change crisis. We complain about his positions on Facebook, etc.--this is the opportunity to inform him of our complete opposition to his dangerous climate denialism.
- THINK GLOBAL AND ACT LOCAL. It is our responsibility to act on our local climate issues.
- 350.org is organizing a campaign this fall to call out candidates at all levels who block climate action.
ACT NOW: please plan to support this action. Last time there was great media coverage, but there needs to be more bodies to increase the impact. And kindly RSVP email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your commitment to be present.
