There's no question there's some global warming, but I'm not sure what it means. A lot of this is condescending elitism. - Pat Roberts
I'm not sure that there is even climate change. I think it's something that we should continue to study and make sure our ecology continues to improve. - Roger Marshall, past statement quoted on KSN
This is proof that one-size-fits-all-policies and regulatory overreach are not the answer. ...Rather than more government and one-sided deals, we need to look to free-market innovation, conservation, and some good Kansas common-sense to continue reducing emissions. We should increase our use and production of biofuels in Kansas. We should plant more trees. And we should lean on innovations — not regulations — to cut emission levels across industries. If we do that, we will continue to make meaningful strides. - Roger Marshall, on climate change, quoted by Shawnee Mission Post, 2020
I opposed the Obama administration's decision to enter into the Paris climate accord without appropriate congressional input, and again, when the Trump administration pulled out of the accords, I reiterated that Congress should have a role in consenting to such agreements. I urge President Biden, before he rushes our country back into the flawed Paris Agreement, to submit it to the Senate for consideration to avoid making a consequential decision that lacks input from Congress. Re-entering this agreement would be damaging to jobs in the United States at a time when we need to focus on reopening the economy and helping people return to work. - Jerry Moran, quoted in press release on his Senate website
It seems like every other week I see something new causing cancer and finding out later that it’s not true, so I've learned that you can never focus on just one study. Roger Marshall, past statement on Climate Change
When it comes to energy,...I believe markets, fueled by the consumer, should decide how to use the energy and what is the most efficient and cost-effective energy source. - Steve Watkins
Climate change is real. Consequences are imminent. Action is needed. The future of our planet is not a partisan issue. - Sharice Davids
The fact that U.S. emissions have remained relatively flat since 1990 shows how market innovation and efficiencies, not the heavy hand of centralized government, is the better way to address climate policies. - Ron Estes opinion contribution, The Hill, 2019
