Gene Karpinski, President of the League of Conservation Voters, wrote a new blog on Huffington Post about holding members of Congress accountable for their extreme anti-science views while they’re in their districts during the August recess:
For far too long, elected officials have been able to sweep their extreme anti-science positions under the rug hoping their constituents won't notice.

We're joining in a nationwide Day of Action on Aug. 13 to shine a light on their denial of basic science and push for action on climate.
