A series of just leaked emails shows officials at Trump’s Department of Agriculture telling staff to avoid the words “climate change” and “reduce greenhouse gases” in their work. This is part of the Trump administration’s larger efforts to brush the reality of climate pollution under the rug.
Now Trump has appointed Sam Clovis, an openly racist and anti-science nominee to serve as chief scientist for the Department of Agriculture. Thank you for signing our petition to all Senators demanding they oppose his confirmation.
Please, call your Senators. Here’s a sample script:
Hi, my name is _________, and I am your constituent calling from _______. (Give address too) I am calling to ask Senator _______ to strongly oppose the confirmation of Sam Clovis to be U.S. Under Secretary of Agriculture for Research, Education, and Economics. Sam Clovis’ track record of climate denial and his history of deeply offensive racist writings make him unqualified for the post. Please, confirm that Senator ______ opposes his confirmation.
