Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Climate Hypocrisy

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. traffics in conspiracy theories, strongly opposes biggest investment in climate action in history

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announcing his independent presidential bid, Lori Lodes, executive director of Climate Power, released the following statement: 

“Let’s be clear: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a dangerous conspiracy theorist, not a climate champion. He opposes the Inflation Reduction Act, the single largest investment in climate action and clean energy ever passed. He has even called climate action a tyrannical plot being used as a pretext to ‘control us through fear.’ Just like every Republican running and the Republicans who back his campaign, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. would kill the clean energy boom cold and roll back our progress.” 

Despite claims that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a champion for climate action, the truth is the opposite.
