Unfortunately for our lawmakers, what happens in Washington is no longer going to stay in Washington. Thanks to a newly designed website, it's easier than ever for concerned citizens to find out the truth about the voting records of their elected officials -- and the dirty industries that help get them into office.

It's not just dirty money that earns Congressman Shimkus today's Dirty Denier award, it's his opposition to reducing dangerous carbon pollution.

Why is Congressman Cory Gardner smiling? Maybe it's because in just four years in Congress, he has raised $695,000 from dirty polluters from the oil and gas industry, who happen to be the largest source of his contributions.

Back in 2007 Rubio seemed to believe in the importance of solving climate change, and the scientific evidence has only grown stronger since then. What's also grown since 2007? The amount of money pumped into Rubio's campaign coffers by polluter interests.

It's time for Walberg to stop throwing up roadblocks against protections for public health. He could start by supporting the EPA's Clean Power Plan to tackle climate change.

The Senate is (sadly) full of climate deniers, but none of them is more dangerous than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. That's because Sen. McConnell possesses that dangerous combination of denialism and power.

The Koch Brothers alone are estimated to spend $390 million in targeted races this year. In fact, reports in March already had them at the $30 million mark. Their goal? Protect dirty deniers who will, in turn, follow a right-wing agenda and protect the Koch's polluting interests.
