2022 Dirty Dozen: Ron Johnson

Ron Johnson

2022 Dirty Dozen

Dirty Dozen member and Senator Ron Johnson has a long history of denying the existential threat of climate change. From repeatedly opposing legislation that would create clean energy jobs to calling climate change “bullshit” during 2021’s unprecedented and dangerous heatwave, Johnson is one of the Senate’s biggest climate action foes. Like Donald Trump, Johnson has falsely speculated that there are “health” issues with wind turbines – ignoring the massive economic opportunities for Wisconsin by transitioning to clean energy. Johnson has also consistently voted against clean air and water protections while raking in over $700,000  in campaign cash from the fossil fuel industry. His dismal anti-environmental record has earned him an abysmal lifetime score of just 7% in LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
