Trump's Man Says Climate Scientists are the Same as Holocaust Deniers

Thom plus logo Trump has put a climate change denier who compares scientists studying carbon pollution to Nazis attacking Jews in charge of his science panel. The fossil fuel industry, like the tobacco industry before it, is making billionaires on the deaths of people.

Except that fossil fuels are killing the entire planet, rather than just causing lung cancer and heart disease. And, like the tobacco industry - which funded Mike Pence so well that in 2000 Pence wrote an op-ed denying the seriousness of the link between tobacco and cancer - the fossil fuel industry is funding politicians and think tanks to push their lies and sustain their profits.

Now Trump is putting a climate change denier in charge of his science panel, and senators who take the most money from big oil and fossil fuel billionaires like the Kochs are most likely to join in denying climate change.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
