We Need a Representative Who Will Face Facts About the Cause of Fires

We need to elect representatives who care about facts and policy. Until we do, we will never be able to take on the challenging issues we face – like controlling wild fires.

Every year, California residents lose lives and property to fire. It’s getting worse and it will continue to get worse because climate change is an unfortunate fact of life now. The climate change deniers won and we have failed to take on this immense problem with the seriousness it needed. And now, our President is lying about the causes of fire in California, to advance his partisan goals. Or maybe he’s just woefully confused. Either way, we can not take on this difficult, damaging problem if we don’t face the facts, and adopt policies based on those facts.

Tom McClintock is one of the worst climate change deniers in Congress. McClintock is selling us out, one vote at a time. This is one of the many reasons we oppose Tom McClintock. California’s Fourth District, and this country, deserve better.
