2022 Dirty Dozen: Mehmet Oz

Mehmet Oz

2022 Dirty Dozen

Phony Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is a longtime resident of New Jersey with no real connection to Pennsylvania, has pushed classic climate change denier talking points – saying that emissions causing climate change are not a problem because carbon dioxide is only “0.04 percent of our air.” In addition to earning the endorsement of Donald Trump, Oz has the backing of Trump administration cabinet officials Rick Perry, Ryan Zinke, and David Bernhardt as well as billionaire oil executive Harold Hamm. Even as a first-time candidate, Oz easily has earned a spot on LCV Victory Fund’s Dirty Dozen list thanks to his support for reopening federal lands for oil and gas drilling, claiming that the “technology doesn’t exist” to transition to clean energy, and parroting the debunked conspiracy theory that “much of the woke green movement was funded by Putin” on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
