Our top scientific institutions, including the U.S. military, NASA, and NOAA all say pollution is causing our planet to get warmer. Still, false information designed to discredit climate science is actively promoted by organizations with ties to coal and oil. Many leaders in Congress are also spreading disinformation about the climate. While fossil fuel companies are generating enormous profits, we ultimately will bear the costs associated with extreme weather and rising sea levels. Representatives for Arizona in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue.

Kyrsten Sinema, who has a favorable voting record on climate, won an Arizona Senate seat in 2018. In 2020, Mark Kelly, who supports addressing climate change, defeated Martha McSally. who despite acknowledging climate change is happening, has stood against efforts to address the causes of climate change in Congress. Senator McCain previously represented Arizona. In his later years, the late Senator McCain resumed attempts to bridge party gaps and make progress on the issue of climate change. He is said to have sought 'common-sense solutions' to address climate change. Also previously representing Arizona was Jeff Flake, who had a poor record on the environment and on climate change. 
I'll never forget the first time I got to see our planet from low-Earth orbit, seeing this big round ball and realizing that we are really all in this together. It becomes really clear really quickly that we have no place else to go. There is no planet B. We're not moving somewhere else someday. We have to do a better job taking care of this planet. - Mark Kelly

You know, I think I have a reasonably good statistics background. And I have not sat there with pages and pages of data. But when you think about the complexity of a worldwide system and the amount of data you'd have to capture, and how you adjust for a sunspot, and how you adjust for a hurricane and I think it's incredibly arrogant for the Al Gores of the world to stand up and say the world is coming to an end. - David Schweikert
