In recent years, the Democrats have become the party of combating climate change, while some Republicans willingly deny the effect. This includes Donald Trump. When the Midwest experienced a 60 degree day in January, the President tweeted, “What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!”
Democrats have continued to raise the alarm on climate change on Twitter and during the debates. John Cornyn recently mocked a call to climate action from New York Senator Chuck Schumer. The Texas senator was then blasted on Twitter for his blase attitude on the issue.
Schumer’s tweet read, “July 2019 was the hottest month ever, of any month, on record. Climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet. It’s about our kids. It’s about our health. It’s about the future. We must act.” Cornyn simply responded, “It’s summer, Chuck.”
