A campaign to vote "climate change" deniers out of the House
Republican Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois has been named
the fifth and final target in the "Defeat the Flat Earth Five" campaign, led by
the League of Conservation Voters.
Marc Morano of Climate Depot says this type of effort is
"This happens every election cycle -- the League of
Conservation Voters does this [type of campaign]," he says. "They
try to claim they're bipartisan, but it's exclusively against
Republican members, and it's basically a bunch of left-wing
environmentalists who don't like anyone challenging them, and they
try to pick out the most vulnerable Republicans so that they can
then claim success."
The other representatives being targeted are Ann Marie Buerkle
(NY-24), Dan Benishek (MI-1), Dan Lungren (CA-7) and Francisco
Canseco (TX-23). The latter told OneNewsNow in August that he is being unfairly
"But I also think the rhetoric is totally wrong,"
Canesco stated. "It is really counterproductive to have a debate
about whether or not there is climate change and whether or not
there is climate change occurring. What we should be having is a
debate about policies that are promoted and implemented in the name
of climate change and that negatively impact opportunities for our
citizens and kill jobs."
The Texas representative added that a flourishing economy is
important to protecting the environment, because it allows for more
scientific breakthroughs and technological advances that help
protect the environment.
