Donald Trump's nominee to lead NASA doesn't think climate change is real.

NASA plays a critical role in monitoring the destructive effects of climate change. It's unacceptable for Trump to put forward a climate denier to lead the agency, and it's up to us to stop this nomination.

Jim Bridenstine, Trump's nominee, is an Oklahoma politician who's gone on the record as denying climate change is real. Some senators, including Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson, have already spoken out against his nomination.

Send a message to your senators and urge them to oppose Jim Bridenstine's nomination to head NASA.

"Our nation is already seeing the destruction that climate change is capable of. From wildfires to hurricanes, climate change is intensifying weather events, destroying people's lives around the globe. NASA plays a critical role in monitoring climate change, and it's imperative that it retains that role. Jim Bridenstine, Trump's nominee to lead NASA, has stated multiple times -- including on the floor of the House -- that he doesn't believe climate change is real. If confirmed, Bridenstine could politicize NASA's mission and prevent the agency from doing its critical work. Senators including Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson have already spoken out against his nomination. I urge you to oppose Jim Bridenstine's nomination to lead NASA. Climate change denial will lead NASA in the wrong direction and will prevent it from fulfilling its mission."
