Volunteers tell deniers: Don't be a #ClimateFool

You know what's foolish? Certain members of Congress still deny the overwhelming consensus that climate change is real, manmade, and affecting our communities. On Tuesday, volunteers visited their members of Congress to hand-deliver copies of the report published Monday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an international body that represents the gold standard on climate science.

The report details the risks we run if we fail to act now—and it gives these climate change deniers one more powerful reason to take the issue seriously, and take meaningful steps to protect our future.

Here's a look at some of the events:

Houston, Texas—Volunteers visited Senator Ted Cruz's office and sat down with his Southeast Texas Regional Director to talk about climate change. His staff agreed to read the report and release a statement on it.

Jackson, Michigan—After gathering outside, OFA supporters were invited into the office of Representative Tim Walberg, where they presented one of the congressman's aides with the IPCC report.

Orlando, Florida—The Central Florida OFA team visited Senator Marco Rubio's office to show him that climate change is real, and to let him know that he needs to act on before it's too late. Thomas Self, Senator Rubio’s staff assistant, met with OFA volunteers and accepted a copy of the IPCC report.

Virginia Beach, Virginia—Volunteers rallied in front of Congressman Scott Rigell's office to remind him that climate change is not a joke.

Boca Raton, Florida—An aide to state Representative Bill Hager met with volunteers to discuss the IPCC report at length.
