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 Colorado in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue.

Last District Updates 2021
John Hickenlooper won the Senate in 2020 while advocating for solutions to climate change. Cory Gardner previously was a senator for Colorado. Gardner had said he agrees that the climate is changing, but he questioned the extent man is changing it. His statements adapted in later years, saying his "bipartisan approach aims to reduce emissions, combat climate change, and grow the economy". Colorado Senator Michael Bennet holds views that are favorable towards addressing the climate issue. Bennet has earned a good deal of respect for his work on climate change and conservation.
Climate change is the defining challenge of our time, and our state is on the front lines of this crisis, with shorter winters, catastrophic floods and wildfires, and continued air pollution.- John Hickenlooper
United States House of Representatives

District 1: Diana DeGette has supported efforts to solve climate change.
"The only place you can find climate change deniers to this day,” began DeGette, who represents Denver, “is in the halls of Congress." - Dianna DeGette
District 2: Joe Neguse is the incumbent in Colorado district 2. He is a Democrat who actively supports efforts to fight climate change in Congress.
"My wife and I had a daughter … and I think a lot about the world she will inherit, the world that young folks will inherit" - Joe Neguse, District 2
District 3: Lauren Boebert represents district 3. She has spoken out against the U.S. involvement in the Paris Climate Agreement. Scott Tipton was previously the Republican representative for district 3. He did not support efforts in Congress to fight climate change by regulating greenhouse gas emissions. He acknowledged that climate change exists, but had not accepted that humans are causing it. In more recent years, he seemed to be more open to the realities of climate change.
What's your climate change solution that doesn’t include taxation and socialism? Oh wait...Lauren Boebert, on Twitter, replying to Biden, 2020
District 4: Republican Ken Buck represents district 4 in Colorado. He is has stood against proposed regulations to fight climate change in Congress. He was challenged in 2016 by Bob Seay, who supported efforts to solve the problem. "Ken Buck doesn't want to hear that climate change is a real problem, even though anyone with a thermometer and a piece of graph paper can tell that it is." - Bob Seay.
"I oppose legislation that places costly rules or tax schemes on coal, because unnecessary regulations drive up energy prices and cost jobs." - Ken Buck, District 4 Colorado
District 5: Doug Lamborn, Republican incumbent representative for this district, had been called out on BarackObama for his statements about climate change. Doug Lamborn has stood against efforts in Congress to regulate emissions.
Climate change policies should not be far-reaching socialist schemes like the Green New Deal. America is already a leading reducer of greenhouse gasses without being in the Paris Climate Accords. I support pathways to renewable energy but do not support an action that will cause massive job loss and economic downfall. The Climate Action Now Act does not put America first, and this bill would do nothing but harm my constituents, which is why I voted no. - Doug Lamborn statement on House website, 2019
District 6: Jason Crow won this district in 2018, beating Mike Coffman, who thought we should 'look into' our influence on climate. Jason Crow holds favorable views on addressing climate change.
"Climate change is naturally occurring. What influence do we have over that, we certainly need to look into, but that's subject to debate." - Mike Coffman, former representative, District 6
Climate change is a severe threat to the planet, people, and our nation. Congress must act to reduce carbon pollution and other emissions to protect against further impacts of climate change, but it must also work to help communities adapt to an already changing climate. - Jason Crow
District 7: Ed Perlmutter represents this district with a view that supports efforts to fight climate change.
