Our top scientific institutions, including the U.S. military, NASA, and NOAA all 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 coal and oil. Many leaders in Congress are also spreading disinformation about the climate. 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.

United States Senate Representatives for Montana
Steve Daines represents Montana. He has in the past suggested that "the jury is still out" on climate change and that there is "significant debate" about it.  In the past, Steve Daines had referenced questionable arguments to support his claims. Steve Bullock challenged Daines in 2020. Steve Bullock has proposed a council to begin to address the climate change issue. Jon Tester is Montana's other Senator - Jon Tester is a supporter of efforts on climate change.
The Paris Climate Agreement is a horrible deal for America. - Steve Daines
To suggest that it's human-caused is not a sound scientific conclusion. There is a human component, here, but I think it's important to recognize there are also natural trends, given the climate is always changing, it's never static, it's always increasing or decreasing. - Steve Daines, quoted by Bozeman Daily Chronicle

U.S. House of Representatives
Montana has one representative in Congress, held by Matt Rosendale, who speaks against regulations to address climate change. This seat was formerly held by Ryan Zinke, who questioned whether humans are causing climate change and earned a cabinet position with the Trump administration. Ryan Zinke was on the BarackObama.com list of members of Congress who were blocking progress on climate change.  Zinke's departure left the position open, and Greg Gianforte held the seat briefly.  Greg Gianforte had been opposed to regulations to address climate change. He had repeated questionable arguments against climate science and was against the Clean Power Plan.
The climate does change, the question is how much impact do humans have on it and how much impact can we have on it by dramatically imposing draconian restrictions on our businesses. I haven't seen enough evidence that by imposing draconian regulation on our business and our industries, and the cost would be transferred to the consumer, for the potential of possibly having a minuscule impact on the climate. - Matt Rosendale, 2018, quoted by Helena Independent Record
