Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

Montana

Our top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, leading companies in the oil industry (including Shell and British Petroleum), and nearly all credible experts say pollution is causing our planet to get warmer. Still, false information designed to discredit climate science is actively promoted by organizations with ties to fossil fuels, and many leaders in Congress are also spreading disinformation for political reasons. While fossil fuel companies are generating enormous profits, we ultimately will bear the costs associated with extreme weather and rising sea levels. Representatives for Montana in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue. We've researched every district and made it easy for you to lookup your representatives' positions on climate. Enter an address in the form below to find your House representative.

United States Senate Representatives for Montana
Climate change denier Sen. Steve Daines represents Montana with a position that "the jury is still out" on climate change and that there is "significant debate" about it.  Steve Daines references false, non-scientific denial arguments to support his claims. Jon Tester is Montana's other Senator - Jon Tester is a supporter of efforts on climate change.

U.S. House of Representatives
Montana has one representative in Congress. It was held by Ryan Zinke, who denies humans are causing climate change and thus earned a cabinet position with the Trump administration. Ryan Zinke was on President Obama's list of climate change deniers for blocking progress on climate change and repeating ignorant arguments about its causes.  Zinke's departure left the position open, and Greg Gianforte now holds seat for representative of Montana.  He is opposes to efforts to address climate change. He has repeated climate denial arguments and was against the Clean Power Plan. Several challengers are lining up for the race against Greg Gianforte in 2018.
