Comment on “oil-soaked” report from EPW Republicans

This afternoon, Republican members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee released an outrageous report attacking environmental groups, including 350.org.

350.org Communications Director Jamie Henn issued the following statement:

“Talk about throwing stones in a glass house. These Senators take millions from Big Oil billionaires and then waste taxpayer money attacking citizen groups who dare take on the industry. The conspiracy theory that some secret club is controlling a movement of millions is as ludicrous as the accusation is pathetic. I’m surprised they didn’t issue tinfoil hats with the report. These climate deniers have ignored us, laughed at us, and now attacked us–clearly we’re on the right track to a win.”
