Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

Connecticut

Our top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, leading companies in the oil industry (including Shell and British Petroleum), and nearly all credible experts 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 fossil fuels, and many leaders in Congress are also spreading disinformation for political reasons. While fossil fuel companies are generating enormous profits, we ultimately will bear the costs associated with extreme weather and rising sea levels. Representatives for Connecticut in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue. We've researched every district and made it easy for you to lookup your representatives' positions on climate. Enter an address in the form below to find your House representative.
