After all, that’s what responsible people do.And Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) is wrong, as a letter sent to him today by 31 environmental, health, faith, women’s and latino groups, including NRDC Action Fund, makes clear.
On April 6th, Brown voted in support of a proposal that would have blocked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from reducing carbon pollution and other greenhouse gases.
A few weeks later, the League of Women Voters ran hard-hitting ads against Senator Brown and Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO), who voted for a similar measure. As I’ve mentioned before, the ads portray an asthmatic child with a breathing mask to emphasize the health damage caused by carbon pollution. But Scott Brown didn’t want Massachusetts voters to realize he’d voted for a bill that if enacted would endanger kids with asthma, as my colleague Heather Taylor-Miesle discussed.
