    Booker’s Win is a Rejection of the Tea Party’s Extreme Agenda

    Last night, the people of New Jersey sent a strong message to Capitol Hill by rejecting a candidate who espoused the extreme views of the Koch Brother’s-backed Tea Party, which include people like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin, and instead voting to send Cory Booker to the United States Senate. In the Senate, Booker will be a leader who helps tackle the climate crisis while working to end the gridlock.

    Cuccinelli's Climate Change Denial Would Cost Virginia Taxpayers

    Ken Cuccinelli’s extreme anti-science positions aren’t just bad politics, they’re bad policy. The Center for American Progress Action Fund released a new report this morning that shows just how devastating they would be to Virginia’s economy and middle class if he makes it to the Governor’s mansion in November.

    Congress Shouldn’t Fall for the Koch Brothers’ Power Grab

    A major stumbling block for Congressional action on climate change and clean energy has been the Koch brothers, notorious oil executives with a long history of bankrolling front groups that deny climate change science. One such Koch-backed group, Americans for Prosperity, has been working quietly behind the scenes to kill key incentives for clean energy and block any solutions in Washington that would confront the climate crisis. But now, they’re going even further, teaming up ...More

    Did He Really Say That?
