Pincas —

In case you missed it, a sitting United States senator just doubled down on doubting climate science.

Senator Marco Rubio said in an interview this week that he didn’t believe scientists are right in stating that human activity is affecting climate change.

Sometimes you just have to call it like you see it: Marco Rubio is a climate change denier.

By our count, there are more than 130 of them in Congress. For anyone who knows how serious this issue is, that denial is dangerous.

We need to fight back against climate change denial every single time we see it

For Senator Rubio’s home state of Florida, this isn’t an academic question.

Miami is one of the American cities most vulnerable to rising sea levels — they’ve already risen eight inches since 1870, and it’s speeding up: A recent report said they could rise another two feet by 2060.

Despite all that, Senator Rubio denies the science behind climate change.

If we don’t speak up against this nonsense from lawmakers in Washington, we’re never going to be able to seriously tackle climate change in Congress.

Add your name and help call out climate change denial wherever it rears its ugly head:

P.S. — There’s actually video out there of Senator Rubio denying climate change. You’ve got to see the video for yourself — then join the fight against climate change deniers in Congress.
