Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | 2016 Elections


NASA and the nation's leading scientific organizations say we are causing climate change. In addition to the country's top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, leading companies in the oil industry (such as Shell and British Petroleum), physicist Stephen Hawking, and pretty much all credible scientists say pollution is causing the planet to get warmer. In addition, hundreds of other countries on this planet have reached the same conclusions about climate change. Despite the already observable effects of climate change and the overwhelming consensus among credible organizations that say climate change already happening, a shockingly large portion of the population believes climate change is a 'hoax' or a 'liberal conspiracy'. Much of this ignorance is propagated by organizations with ties to fossil fuels, and it is unacceptable that some leaders in Congress are facilitating this spread of misinformation for political reasons.

Ashburn Virginia is in Virginia District

Senate 2016
Climate change denier Sen. Steve Daines is not up for re-election in 2016, so he will continue to block action on climate change in Congress for a few more years. Jon Tester is Montana's other Senator - he is a supporter of efforts on climate change.

House 2016
Montana has one district for Congress. Democrat Denise Juneau is challenging Republican Ryan Zinke for the job in the 2016 election, and she has the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters. Ryan Zinke is on the President's list of climate change deniers for blocking progress on climate change and repeating ignorant arguments about its causes.
"The evidence strongly suggests that humans have had an influence on higher CO2, However, the evidence is equally as strong that there are other factors, such as rising ocean temperatures, that have a greater influence. - Ryan Zinke"
We're hoping Montana sends Denise Juneau to Congress
