John Cornyn (top, left) supposedly loves horses.
Well, we find the cropping of this photo offensive.
We can't look into John Cornyn's heart. But we can look at his voting record and so can you.
Texas has big problems. Cornyn has big donors.That's the problem.
He has consistently opposed efforts to regulate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and to promote clean water and clean air.
He supported the cabinet appointments of the most destructive heads of the EPA in history including current EPA head Andrew Wheeler, a former coal & energy lobbyist who spent years fighting the agency he now runs.
Our changing climate is a hot issue for Texans. It should be for John Cornyn.
3 of the 10 hottest cities in the U.S. are in Texas. Our climate affects us all, every day. Feeling sluggish, even if you're not a slug? Join the club!
As droughts and floods get more severe due to the fossil fuel carbon emissions John doesn't want to limit, insurance companies are dropping Texans, making taxpayers foot their bills instead.
Texas is full of businesses that emit air pollution - legally and illegally. Cornyn voted against limiting them at all.
Air pollution from the oil and gas industry harms the health of people (and creatures) throughout Texas, increasing the cancer risk for millions of people and forming ozone smog that causes asthma attacks and other health problems across the state. Last year, the US Environmental Protection Agency put important standards in place to reduce air pollution from over seven thousand newer oil and gas sites across Texas, but Cornyn voted with the Trump Administration to suspend these measures, further endangering the health of all Texans.
Under Cornyn, Texas is the #1 state in violating water rules, and the #1 producer of waste water in the country, and the #1 state with a population of people who don't have health insurance.
With the changes in rising temperatures, Texans all face an increased risk and spread of pandemics, particularly in communities exposed to more air pollution.
Texas needs big ideas but Cornyn thinks small.
Cornyn has repeatedly mocked scientific findings, whether on health care issues like the Coronavirus or on climate change.
Texas is now a center of the old, dying energy that’s killing us. A vibrant economy and a sustainable environment can’t rely on it. Not in Texas, not anywhere.
What do we want?
We want John, and every elected official and candidate,
to respect our interconnected world, and to protect the resources we all share.
From tadpoles to trees to oilmen to Longhorns, rabbits to rain, we're all on the same team.
No person should be in a position to sell out nature.
Money should not be our representatives' main incentive.
The system of quid pro quo sucks for all of us, really.
But there is a system that works for all of us.
It's the ecosystem.
And whoever came up with that system deserves our respect.
Is this a joke?
The idea that people pay politicians
and let them put the interest of a few industries
and the wealth of just a few people
above the health of life on earth...that's the joke.
As the chart below shows, humans make up a pathetic .01% of living things on earth but they act like they own the place.
Let's hear it for the fungus among us!
Disillusioned by the lack of leadership of human governments, and inspired by movements like migration, symbiosis, and the natural order of life, in 2020, the five Kingdoms of the World: Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protistae and Monera united to fight for the ecosystem we all love and share. #NatureAgainst
Who is Texas Senator John Cornyn
and how can he hate nature?!
