This really gets my goat

In case you missed it, a sitting United States senator just doubled down on doubting climate science.

Senator Marco Rubio said in an interview this week that he didn't believe scientists are right in stating that human activity is affecting climate change. Sometimes you just have to call it like you see it: Marco Rubio is a climate change denier.

Here's what really gets my goat: Climate change is a direct threat to the state Sen. Rubio represents. Miami is one of the American cities most vulnerable to rising sea levels—they've already risen eight inches since 1870, and it's speeding up. A recent report said they could rise another two feet by 2060.

Despite all that, Senator Rubio denies the science behind climate change. Watch what Rubio said:

By our count, there are more than 130 climate change deniers in Congress. For anyone who knows how serious this issue is, that denial is dangerous. We need to fight back against climate change denial every single time we see it—add your name to call them out.

If we don't speak up against this nonsense from lawmakers in Washington, we're never going to be able to seriously tackle climate change in Congress. Add your name and help call out climate change denial wherever it rears its ugly head.
