55 percent of Republicans in Congress and 90 percent of the party's leadership deny climate change

July 16, 2015

"After 341 straight months of warmer-than-average global temperatures, 55 percent of Republicans in the 113th Congress still deny climate change. Among the party's leadership, 90 percent are deniers. Whether it's cause or effect, large donations from the dirty energy industry flow accordingly."
