climate change smokestacks

Silence is complicity.  Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA10) has evaded her constituents and avoided comment on climate change.  She has not addressed the issue in any known public forum and her website includes no information on the subject.  None of her 86 photo ops in the first 100 days have addressed climate change.  Despite ample opportunity, she has remained silent in face of Trump’s assault on science and his effort to revive the dying coal-fired power industry.

Rep. Comstock’s legislative record speaks even louder than her missing words. During Trump’s first 100 days, Comstock has already:

No one should be surprised by this except, perhaps, the editorial board of the Washington Post, which endorsed Comstock for re-election in 2016 on “a calculated hope” that she would mellow her hard-right ways.

The Post should have considered Comstock’s voting record. Based on her two terms in Congress, Rep. Comstock earned a 3% lifetime rating from the League of Conservation Voters.

Even the comical Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert has earned a better rating than that.

Make a mental note.
