The Rallies took place at U.S. Senators’ in-state offices nationwide
Washington, DC — On Monday, January 9th, a coalition of climate and environmental organizations were joined by people across the country at rallies for the ‘Day Against Denial’ aimed at stopping Trump’s cabinet. The rallies took place at dozens of U.S. Senators’ in-state offices, calling for these elected officials to reject Trump’s climate denial cabinet, including Rex Tillerson, recent former CEO of ExxonMobil, for Secretary of State; Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator; Ex-Gov. Rick Perry for Secretary of Energy; and Rep. Ryan Zinke for Department of Interior.

From Climate Central:
Tuesday marked the start of confirmation hearings for President-elect Trump’s cabinet nominees. The grueling sessions allow senators from both parties to probe nominees’ backgrounds, question their views and priorities for the agencies they’ll be tasked with running, and weigh their expertise.
One potential flashpoint for a number of nominees is climate change and clean energy. Many of Trump’s nominees — and Trump himself — have widely expressed climate science denialism and questioned the value of clean energy.
The rantings of fools who never rest.
