Tell the Senate: Reject racist and climate-denying Clovis for top USDA science position

Trump nominated a right-wing climate denier, Sam Clovis, to the top science position at the US Department of Agriculture — Undersecretary for Research, Education and Economics. 

Clovis is a Trump campaign advisor and former radio talk-show host with NO background in science or agriculture. The Department of Agriculture is on the front lines of the climate crisis, from studying how to reduce carbon emissions from U.S. food production to planning how the nation's farmers will adapt to more severe weather patterns like droughts and floods.

Yet Clovis doesn't even accept the reality of climate change. When asked in 2014, he said this about climate change: "I am extremely skeptical. I have looked at the science and I have enough of a science background to know when I’m being boofed. And a lot of the science is junk science."

Further, Clovis has a history of racist and offensive rants, including calling progressives “liars, race traders and race ‘traitors.’" 

Clovis' nomination requires Senate confirmation, so we have a very real chance to stop it. Add your name to call on all Senators to reject Sam Clovis as chief scientist at USDA.
