Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT)

The Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow gets significant funding from big oil, and has been known to rally behind anti-government extremists, make racist and transphobic statements, spread climate change disinformation, and promote fringe conspiracy theories.

About Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT)

The Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) is a climate denial group peddling disinformation and fighting green policies. CFACT spreads disinformation about the Biden Administration’s America the Beautiful Conservation initiative that aims to conserve 30% of lands and waters by 2030, as well as climate science, while saying the “real threat” is policies like clean energy and federal management of public lands.

To spread disinformation and create fear amongst supporters, CFACT pushes conspiracy theories like equating green policies to Nazi Germany and saying COVID-19 and climate policies were designed to work together to destroy the United States. CFACT promotes the Agenda 21 conspiracy theory favored by anti-public land extremists that a UN resolution from 1992 will destroy private property rights. 

CFACT rallies behind anti-government extremists, even providing supplies to the Canadian Truckers occupying downtown Ontario and praising the Bundys. CFACT went so far as to equate the Bundy militia’s occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge with Tiananmen Square.

CFACT and its leadership use extremist statements and attack people of color in the Biden administration. Refusing to limit themselves to climate denial, CFACT uses its platform to fearmonger about “critical race theory,” attack support for transgender children, and say only immigrants who want to learn English should be allowed in the U.S.

CFACT and its climate denial are funded by Big Oil, getting over half a million dollars from Exxon and north of $7.8M from Donors Trust and the Koch brothers networks. 

In addition to denying climate change and spreading conspiracy theories, CFACT’s leadership is aligned with anti-government extremists supporting violence and spreading misinformation about the 2020 election.

Co-founder and president Craig Rucker falsely claims climate change is a hoax. Rucker has spoken on Matt Shea’s podcast, a former Washington state representative who repeatedly planned armed attacks against the country.

CFACT director of communications Marc Morano called for climate scientists to be “publicly flogged” and called for more riots across the country as the US Capitol was being invaded on January 6th.
