Half of all Republican Governors are Climate Deniers

EcoWatch: “A large number of Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives refuse to recognize even basic climate science. A new analysis by the Center for American Progress (CAP) shows that out of America’s 29 Republican governors, half of them side with the anti-science, climate denier caucus.”

“To highlight the discrepancy,  CAP Action War Room created an interactive map where users can track each governor’s record on climate and energy policy, including the Democratic governors, none of which, as CAP points out, have made public statements denying climate change.”

        The problem is that they used three colors for a map with four different categories in the legend. The reds are the exact same shade, and the black diagonal lines don’t show up well in as dark a red as that.

    I see that Indiana’s own Mike Pence is on there. He’s claimed that global warming is a hoax perpetrated by sinister environmentalists.
