Green Peace wears a Swamp Thing Mask during Senate Hearing

During a Senate hearing for Trump's Secretary of the Interior nominee, former oil and gas lobbyist David Bernhardt, who has helped open up lands and waters to oil exploration while blocking environmental impact reports as Deputy Interior Secretary, Greenpeace activists put on Swamp Thing masks during his opening statement.

One activist was positioned perfectly in the background; you can see her casually slip the mask on. According to Green Peace USA Climate and Energy Campaign Director Janet Redman:

“Any member of Congress who takes climate change seriously must vehemently oppose this nomination. In our current climate crisis, it is not enough to fight for solutions like a Green New Deal, alone. We must also be working urgently for a just transition away from coal, oil, and gas to 100% renewable energy — and that means resisting Bernhardt’s attempts to open up federal lands and waters to his friends in the fossil fuel industry."

Here is the video of the swamp monsters from Greenpeace. This is just some good ol' fashioned political protesting and it worked.
