Read all about it: OFA supporters young and old call out climate deniers

An OFA supporter in Texas speaks to the press outside the offices of denier Rep. Ted Poe.

The goal of Tuesday's climate day of action was simple: make it clear who is preventing action on climate change, and why. With the help of unicorn statuettes, OFA volunteers did just that. Here's a look at some of the new coverage:

- "For whatever reason Congressman Steve King is deciding to ignore the facts, ignore the science," said OFA volunteer DJ Smith to local news in Iowa. [KCAU-TV]
- In northeastern Pennsylvania, OFA supporters visited the offices of U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta to deliver his award for denying the science on climate change. [The Times Leader]
- In California, one climate denier award was delivered to U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. "This award is designed to draw attention to the anti-reality and anti-science position that Rohrabacher and others in Congress have taken," said OFA-OC. [OC Weekly]
- OFA volunteers visited several of Sen. Marco Rubio's offices in Florida on Tuesday. [Tampa Tribune]
- Climate denier Rep. Rob Wittman of southern Virginia claims to be a "champion of the Chesapeake," but OFA volunteers showed that his stance on climate change leaves much to be desired. [Daily Press]
- In San Diego, OFA supporters visited U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa. "[F]rom ocean protection to climate change to species protection to wilderness protection—you name the environmental issue, and Darrel Issa is usually on the wrong side of it," a supporter said. [KPBS]
- In Tennessee, U.S. Rep. Scott Desjarlais received his Climate Change Denier Award from a group of OFA volunteers. “He’s a medical doctor,” Chris Polk told The Daily News Journal. “So we know he believes in science." [Daily News Journal]
- A member of U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett's staff met with OFA supporters who delivered the congressman's award to his office in New Jersey. [Patch]
