Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

Kansas

Our top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, leading companies in the oil industry (including Shell and British Petroleum), Stephen Hawking, and nearly all credible scientists say pollution is causing our planet to get warmer. Despite the consensus among credible organizations and the already observable effects of climate change, a large portion of the population believes climate change is a 'hoax' or a 'liberal conspiracy'. False information designed to discredit climate science is actively promoted by organizations with ties to fossil fuels, and it is unacceptable that some leaders in Congress are facilitating the spread of ignorance for political reasons.

Representatives for Kansas in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve climate change. Let's see where your representatives in Congress stand on this issue.
