I do not believe in man-made climate change. - Jim Hagedorn, quoted by KEYC
Just because we want to support energy independence, and expansion and exploration of oil and gas which is critical for our economy, doesn’t mean we are for more pollution. - Jim Hagedorn, quoted by MPR News
The facts are clear: climate change is happening. Here in Minnesota, we can feel the effects in increasing temperatures and increased flooding, which threatens our infrastructure, costs taxpayer dollars, and hurts farmers' ability to harvest their crops. - Angie Craig, House website
We're told climate change is weather extremes--very hot and very cold. Yeah, we used to call that summer & winter. Right now it's winter. - Jason Lewis, past statement
It's the 21st century, and it's time to accelerate our transition to a clean-energy economy, reduce our carbon footprint, and preserve and protect our natural environment for future generations. - Dean Phillips
In Congress, my top environmental priority is addressing climate change and helping our country reduce its carbon footprint by transitioning away from a reliance on fossil fuels and moving towards a 100% clean energy economy. I am a strong advocate for policies that invest in renewable energy, champion green efficient manufacturing and uphold strong environmental protections. - Ilhan Omar, House website
There's no question the Earth's temperature is warming – after all, during the last Ice Age which ended 10,000 years ago, 32 percent of Earth's land area was covered with glaciers, and that number is just 10 percent today. Rather than implementing a strict regulatory regime that drives up the cost of energy and destroys good-paying jobs – as some have proposed – I believe there are a number of commonsense changes we should pursue instead that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save taxpayers money and result in job-creating efficiencies. I support pursuing an all-of-the-above energy policy including sources like wind, solar, geothermal, nuclear and hydro. Pete Stauber, asked if he believed in climate change, quoted by CBS Local
