Environmentalists name 5th member of 'Flat Earth Five'

A campaign to vote "climate change" deniers out of the House continues.

Republican Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois has been named the fifth and final target in the "Defeat the Flat Earth Five" campaign, led by the League of Conservation Voters.

Marc Morano of Climate Depot says this type of effort is nothing new.

Morano, Marc (Climate Depot)"This happens every election cycle -- the League of Conservation Voters does this [type of campaign]," he says. "They try to claim they're bipartisan, but it's exclusively against Republican members, and it's basically a bunch of left-wing environmentalists who don't like anyone challenging them, and they try to pick out the most vulnerable Republicans so that they can then claim success."

The other representatives being targeted are Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-24), Dan Benishek (MI-1), Dan Lungren (CA-7) and Francisco Canseco (TX-23). The latter told OneNewsNow in August that he is being unfairly targeted.

Canseco, Francisco (R-TX)"But I also think the rhetoric is totally wrong," Canesco stated. "It is really counterproductive to have a debate about whether or not there is climate change and whether or not there is climate change occurring. What we should be having is a debate about policies that are promoted and implemented in the name of climate change and that negatively impact opportunities for our citizens and kill jobs."

The Texas representative added that a flourishing economy is important to protecting the environment, because it allows for more scientific breakthroughs and technological advances that help protect the environment.
