Union of Concerned Scientists – Thank Your Senator for Opposing Former ExxonMobil CEO

From The Union of Concerned Scientists:

The US Senate voted on the nomination of former ExxonMobil head Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State. An unprecedented 43 senators voted against his nomination!

Tell your senator thanks for opposing a nominee who has spent decades questioning the validity of climate science. During his nomination hearings, Secretary Tillerson failed to show how he would resolve conflicts of interest over the next four years, demonstrated ignorance on foreign policy, and refused to take an unequivocal stand against human rights violations.

While his confirmation still passed the Senate 56-43, this vote goes down in history as the largest tally against a Secretary of State since at least 1949. Now, we will need your senator to hold Secretary Tillerson accountable for his actions and ensure he puts the interests of the American people above those of the fossil fuel industry.

Your senator showed determination by standing in opposition to a nominee who questions the validity of climate science.

Thank your senator for opposing Rex Tillerson’s nomination for Secretary of State.

Please make your letter personal by adding in your own thoughts and concerns. Every letter makes a difference, but customized letters have the greatest effect!
