Good News: Team Obama Calling Climate Change Skeptics "Flat Earthers"
6/27/2013 5:00:00 PM - Katie Pavlich
In an effort to make people take President Obama's
climate change push seriously, the DNC is calling climate change skeptics "flat earthers" in an email to supporters.
Just this week, President Obama announced his comprehensive plan to tackle climate change. And guess what? The climate-change deniers are already out in full force.
It's astounding to me that in 2013 there are still people who claim that climate change isn't real -- a viewpoint with no basis in scientific fact.
But because these people have the backing of powerful special interests, they've been able to control much of the conversation in Washington and halt progress on these critical issues. And while I hate to say it, if we don't act quickly to support the President, they might win again.
Will you stand up to climate-change deniers and stand with President Obama?
Under the President's plan, we have a real chance to reduce our carbon footprint, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create a more sustainable future for our children, and our children's children. But it won't happen if we don't act.
I can guarantee you that this will be a big fight -- many Republicans will deny science and claim that "those liberals" are making it up. But you, me, and 97 percent of scientists know better -- climate change is real and we have to act now before it's too late.
As the President said, "we don't have time for a meeting of the flat-earth society." Stand up and fight today:
FLASHBACK: 1970s global cooling scare.
