Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

New Hampshire

Our top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, and other 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 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 New Hampshire in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue.

The Trump administration has just squandered an historic opportunity to curb global emissions and protect future generations from the dangerous effects of climate change. - Jeanne Shaheen
How much more dire must reports get before this Administration comes to terms with the fact that global climate change caused by human activities is happening now and it poses a growing threat to our natural resources, our communities, and our economy in New Hampshire and across the globe? - Maggie Hassan


U.S. House of Representatives, New Hampshire

District 1: District 1 in New Hampshire is represented by Carol Shea-Porter. Conservation groups support her and she is an advocate for efforts on climate change. Frank Guinta, a climate change denier, lost this seat in 2016.
I'm deeply disappointed by Governor Sununu’s decision not to join the bipartisan group of governors who remain committed to combating climate change, harnessing the economic promise of renewable energy, and defending their states’ international standing. It would be a serious mistake for New Hampshire to abandon our proud nonpartisan legacy as an environmental leader. - Carol Shea-Porter
District 2: Ann McLane Kuster represents district 2 in New Hampshire. She has the support of conservation groups and says she supports efforts to solve climate change. She will face a Republican challenger in 2018.
Chris Sununu, governor of New Hampshire, falsely claims there is no consensus among scientists on climate change. He is standing against efforts to fight climate change.
