Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

Delaware

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 Delaware 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.

U.S. Senate Representatives for Delaware
Tom Carper, senator for Delaware, is a supporter of efforts to solve climate change.
In Delaware, climate change is not up for debate. We see the evidence in our flooding streets, our changing marshes and our eroding coastlines. While some in other parts of the country may have time to dabble in ignorance, in the First State, we have far too much to lose. - Tom Carper
Delaware's other senator, Christopher Coons, has helped expose front groups promoting false denial claims under the impression that they are legitimate scientific organizations. The senator called out groups like TASSC (The Advancement of Sound Science Center), a pseudo-science organization funded by a fossil fuel company that spreads falsehoods about the state of the climate.
Science should not be a partisan issue. And neither, frankly, should climate change - Christopher Coons
U.S. House of Representatives
Lisa Blunt Rochester represents Delaware in its single House seat.  She understands the issue of climate change and how it relates to Delaware.
Global warming is the biggest environmental threat facing our species…Congress needs to do more to ensure that the impacts and benefits of environmental policies and regulations are felt equally by all people regardless of race, color, national origin, sexual orientation or income. - Lisa Blunt Rochester
