This is nifty. It's an interactive map provided by U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman that allows you to look at every congressional district in the country, with the photo above showing results for the 2nd District of Arkansas, represented by Tiny Tim Griffin of Mayflower, the oil and coal companies' defender. This website explains:
On July 9, 2013, Rep. Henry A. Waxman released a report comparing the impacts of climate change in members’ districts with members’ voting records. The report found a widespread “climate disconnect” in the voting records of the Republican members representing the districts most affected by the soaring temperatures in 2012. They cast anti-climate votes 96% of the time. No similar “climate disconnect” was found in the voting records of House Democrats. The report is available here.
Griffin would say some variation of: 1) Climate isn't changing and 2) any congressional proposals to address climate issues are actually anti-business liberal claptrap.
