I support the president's (Trump) decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords, which was accepted by President Obama in August of 2016 without any congressional approval. Jack Bergman - quoted in The Sault News
"Today's global warming doomsayers simply lack the scientific evidence to support their claims. A host of leaders in the scientific community have recognized that the argument for drastic anthropogenic global warming is no longer based on science, but is being driven by irrational fanaticism." - Bill Huizenga
Granted, a lot of our policies have not been acknowledging either present-day realities or any of the best estimates about where we’re going forward, and that's something that has frustrated me about my party. But ask a fisherman if they care about the environment, ask a hunter if they care about the environment. That sort of conservation ethos has been within the Republican party for over a century. - Peter Meijer, discussing natural resources
I applaud President Biden for rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement. Military and defense experts have concluded that climate change represents a major risk to our national security. Climate change is connected to the destruction of property and loss of life from stronger, more frequent storms. We have a moral responsibility to recognize that climate change is real and requires urgent action to ensure we leave a better world for our children. Addressing climate change is also good for the economy. Investing in building electric vehicles, wind turbines and solar panels creates jobs in mid-Michigan. This will ensure Michigan is playing a role in the future of manufacturing and saving the planet. - Dan Kildee, 2021, House website
"No matter what we did between now and 2050 it, it, there was no real science to verify that it would reduce the temperature rise that some predicted." - past statement, Fred Upton
Fred believes in climate change — he just doesn't think the unrealistic Green New Deal is the way to go like Jon Hoadley does. - Josh Paciorek, an Upton spokesman, quoted by Washington Examiner.
"I read scientists, editors ... an equal number at the very least that say just the opposite that this is something that's gone on for eons, that we go through these cycles." - Tim Walberg, District 7 Michigan
I believe there's climate change. I believe there's been climate change since the beginning of time. Do I think man has some impact? Yeah, of course. Can man change the entire universe? No...Why do I believe that? Well, as a Christian, I believe that there is a creator in God who is much bigger than us. And I'm confident that, if there’s a real problem, he can take care of it. - Tim Walberg, 2017, quoted by Time
The impact of climate change is being felt nationally, and can be seen here in Michigan. I believe climate change is an issue that must be taken seriously - Elissa Slotkin
The US Government has many current energy policies which are designed to protect our water, air, and land. We must be aware of these policies and see that they are enforced in a uniform manner. - Lisa McClain, when asked about clean air and water policies.
I believe climate change is a serious problem and needs to be addressed immediately before it is too late. When an overwhelming number of scientists around the world have cited the realities and dangerous implications of climate change, this is not a partisan issue, but the global challenge of our generation that requires dedicated leadership to tackle. - Haley M. Stevens
