RELEASE: Climate Change Denying Cornyn Says “It’s Summer” and Refuses to Find Solutions for Texans and our Environment

Austin, TX — Today, John Cornyn is set to trash solutions to climate change. This climate change denying farse comes despite the fact that there is overwhelming public support behind combating climate change.

This press event comes on the heels of Cornyn’s widely condemned and ratioed tweet about climate change, where he placed the cause of rising temperatures across the country on it being “summer” and then tried to pass it off as a joke after being mocked.

Cornyn does it at his own peril: polls show 80% of voters support action to reverse climate change, with a large majority of voters supporting creating green-energy jobs and building a green energy future.


Well, Senator Cornyn, Texans are clear: climate change is no joking matter. Texans have lost everything because of climate chaos.

Texas Democratic Party Spokesperson Brittany Switzer issued the following statement:

“As John Cornyn holds yet another climate change denying event, Texans are looking for real solutions to solve our climate crisis. This is life or death for future generations.

“Climate change threatens our economy, our national security, and our children’s health and futures. Texans deserve real solutions to environmental challenges facing us in the 21st century, not fear-mongering and fake science.

“It’s past time for Cornyn to work with Democrats and find solutions to climate change. Texas Democrats will never stop fighting to stop climate chaos, protect our air and water quality, and create thousands of new green energy jobs.”
