Beto O'Rourke Has A Poor Climate Record, Supported Lifted An Oil Export Ban
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke voted twice with Republicans to end a 40-year oil export ban.
In October 2015, O’Rourke voted on a bill to outright lift the restriction on selling U.S. oil overseas, says HuffPost.
The League of Conservation Voters called the export proposal “anti-environment." The bill helped flood global markets with U.S. oil just as fossil fuel emissions rapidly warmed the planet and threatened catastrophe.
