Fires are ravaging the west coast, burning over 6.6 million acres, killing more than 30 individuals, destroying buildings, and leaving thousands of families homeless or displaced. Meanwhile hurricanes are threatening thousands on our East Coast. Scientists inform us that this is our new normal if we fail to take action. - Marie Newman

There is clear evidence that human activity is a significant catalyst toward climate change, producing increased carbon emissions that have caused and will continue to cause lasting damage to our planet. As our next representative, I'll respect the facts, evidence and scientific consensus that Hultgren has turned away from. - Lauren UnderwoodThe previous representative for district 14, Randy Hultgren represented the district in ways that got him onto the BarackObama.com list of members of congress who are questioning action on climate change.
The cost of the Green New Deal is tens of trillions of dollars. The Green New Deal would raise the cost of motor fuel and would impoverish rural families. I will fight to protect rural residents by opposing radical ideas like the Green New Deal and other extreme environmental legislation. Our focus should be on developing clean coal technology and nuclear power. - Mary Miller, quoted in Chicago Tribune, when asked "What measures if any to combat climate change do you support?"
The climate is changing and I believe humans play a role in that. There is no doubt about that. The question is, at whatever do they play a role? Is it 51 percent? Is it 35 percent? I am open minded to listen to people who can give me a different view on that. I am supportive of a clean energy policy. What does that mean? That means clean coal, it means solar, it means wind. - Darin LaHood, in a town hall, quoted in Peoria Journal Star
