A House Committee on Energy and Commerce minority report reveals that the House voted 191 times to undermine the protection of the environment, thus “amassing the worst environmental record of any Congress in history.”
This from 191 Anti-Earth Votes?. I wonder why it is that it is still politically popular to vote against clean water, clean air, and protecting U.S. land from ecological ruin. Like, I don’t get how people can support politicians who vote to dirty their air and water. What we breath and what we drink is so basic, so fundamental.
A summary of the votes:
28 votes to undermine Clean Water Act protections
77 votes to undermine Clean Air Act protections
27 votes to block action to address climate change
47 votes to weaken protection of public lands and coastal waters
