Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wi) showed why the people of Wisconsin need to get rid of him by calling climate change a shit.
“I don’t know about you guys, but I think climate change is, as Lord Monckton put it, nonsense,” said the Wisconsin Republican, not swearing, but not saying anything, and referring to the conservative British climate denier Lord Christopher. Monckton. “By the way, it is.”
Johnson, a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, went on to say that “there are more and more scientists” writing books “just wasting this” and questioned why the United States focused on the climate crisis.
Senator Ron Johnson washes Russian propaganda in the Senate, defends domestic terrorists who attacked the Capitol, and spreads coronavirus conspiracy theories and vaccine misinformation.
Ron Johnson has proven time and again to be a danger to the American people through his misuse of the Senate platform.
It’s absurd for Johnson to deny climate change, as the Pacific Northwest was frying in record heat and extreme weather was sweeping across the country. Weather and climate are not the same, but the weather pattern is evidence that something is wrong with the weather.
Republicans like Johnson refuse to accept science and are hurting the American people by blocking action in a crisis that, with each worsening moment, costs Americans their lives.
Ron Johnson is not in the Senate and should be encouraged not to run for reelection. If he runs, he needs to be defeated.
