Some of the reaction to the President's climate plan from the other side this week has seemed straight-up bonkers.
One group likened it to a terrorist act, the Senate minority leader called it a "dagger in the heart of [...] representative democracy"...
This would all be kind of funny, too, if the opposition wasn't backed with a whole boatload of cash.
The polluters and special interests are prepared to fight this with everything they've got -- right now, we want to know who's willing to fight back.
Diane, how about you? Stand with President Obama, and support aggressive action to combat climate change.
The nonsense on the other side is no accident. This is their strategy.
Last week, House Speaker John Boehner told a reporter, "I'm not qualified to debate the science over climate change."
But this week, he was one of the first out of the gate to throw a punch at the President's plan, saying that this proposal will cost our country billions of dollars and thousands of jobs. The fact checkers don't agree -- Politifact rated his claims "false."
Here's what it boils down to:
The other side is prepared to spread myths and worse to get their way. We just need people to understand the facts.
If you're proud of the President's aggressive plan to fight climate change, you should help fight for it.
