  Photo sourceU.S. Congress
Text sourceThinkProgress

Part of the 2010 Tea Party wave that washed over Congress, Rep. Tipton was re-elected to a 3rd term with 75% of the vote. 

Tipton serves on the House Committee on Natural Resources and the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation.

No Friend to the Environment dishonor roll.

Alabama Congressional delegation:  U.S. House of Representatives.   (Their anti-environmentalism can be summed up in one word:  coal.  Which is odd, since Alabama contributes a mere 1.9% of U.S. production, good enough for an overall ranking of 13.  The state's peak year of production:  1990)  
Alaska Congressional delegation:  U.S. House of Representatives
  • At-large District.  Don Young (R).   Ridiculed environmentalists as a “self-centered bunch of waffle-stomping, Harvard-graduating, intellectual idiots.....not Americans, never have been Americans, never will be Americans.” 
 Arizona Congressional delegation:  U.S. House of Representatives
Arkansas Congressional delegation:  U.S. House of Representatives
California Congressional delegation:  U.S. House of Representatives
Colorado Congressional delegation:  U.S. House of Representatives
  • 3rd District.  Scott Tipton (R)Tree rings tell us all we need to know.
