Chemistry 101 for Republicans When you burn carbon based fuels (C) in the the presence of oxygen (O2) you get CO2.

Since we started burning more carbon based fuels over the last 100+ years we have almost doubled CO2 levels in the atmosphere.

Sen. Mike Crapo and most other Republicans do not believe this. Obviously they either failed basic chemistry in high school, or they’re lying. My guess is they’ve sold out to the oil, gas and coal lobbyists.

Future generations will be subjected to increasingly unstable and severe weather because these politicians will not tell the truth. If you’re concerned about the future for your children, and their children, you might want to email our beloved senator and tell him your thoughts.
