House : California 31
- Chabot is a climate science denier who sought to suspend California’s landmark 2006 law that placed limits on carbon pollution responsible for climate change. In a debate earlier this year, he said, “So I’m not a scientist, but I do watch Science Channel like I’m sure many of you do. I’m not a believer of climate change.” Additionally, according to the Redlands Daily Facts, in a recent debate, “Aguilar accused Chabot of not believing in climate change, putting him out of step with the environmental community, scientific community and Department of Defense. Chabot rebutted by saying maybe Aguilar agrees with Al Gore that by now the ice caps would be gone.”
- The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has found that climate scientists are now 95% to 100% certain that humans are the “dominant cause” of climate change, and NASA and the U.S. military both recognize that climate change is a reality and due to human activities.
- Chabot also blamed the California water crisis on “environmental regulations,”attacked investments in clean energy, and signed a pledge that he would protect billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded subsidies to the oil industry.
