After collectively pouring over $85 million into trying to defeat candidates who wouldn’t cave to climate fear mongering, the enviro moneybags are pretty unhappy with the return on their investment. From the Hill, here’s my favorite quote so far. This is from the executive director of the Sierra Club, Michael Brune:
“strong voices for climate action were defeated, and candidates paid for by corporate interests and bolstered by sinister voter suppression tactics won the day.”
And proving that these guys are even more out of touch than I ever thought, he went on to say that:
“Public support is solidly behind action to tackle the climate crisis. While we have lost friends in Congress, we are gaining them in the streets, as our movement grows stronger and broader.”
Who in the world is this guy referring to?
