Your Congress Representatives on Climate Change
Find Your Voter District and Congress Representatives' Positions on ClimateEnter an address to find your House and Senate representatives.
On June 28, 2016, a letter signed by 31 leading U.S. scientific organizations was sent to Congress urging representatives to end ignorance and denial of climate change. A surprising number of United States Congress representatives still refuse to admit there is consensus on the issue and continue to spread misinformation about climate change in order to allow pollution from fossil fuels to continue.
Dear Members of Congress,
We, as leaders of major scientific organizations, write to remind you of the consensus scientific view of climate change.
Observations throughout the world make it clear that climate change is occurring, and rigorous scientific research concludes that the greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are the primary driver. This conclusion is based on multiple independent lines of evidence and the vast body of peer-reviewed science.

If i was to choose one thing everyone would do, it would be to inform yourself and to try to understand the situation and try to push for a political movement that doesn’t exist because the politics needed to fix this doesn’t exist today. So i think what we should do as individuals is to use the power of democracy to make our voices heard and to make sure that people in power actually cannot continue to ignore this. – Greta Thunberg, Climate Change Activist
“Only in America is there widespread doubt about climate change–and that only comes from one party. One candidate even went so far as to say we should be worried about a looming Ice Age. So much for science.” – Thomas Mills, North Carolina candidate for U.S. Congress
