Today is a sad day for our nation, and for our planet. With the stroke of his pen, President Trump is doing serious damage to nearly a decade of progress on one of the most defining – and important – issues of our time. Climate change is an urgent economic and national security challenge that is already beginning to have disastrous effects. Senator Cory Booker, on Trump's decisions to end climate change efforts
There is no time to waste to reduce greenhouse emissions and get our country back on track to aggressively address the growing threat posed by climate change. - Bob Menendez, Senate website

The people of South Jersey know that climate change is real and that it impacts their quality of life. - Jeff Van Drew
"Is it true that some scientists still deny climate change? Sure – they’re called 'petro-geologists' – but their motives are suspect." - Fred LaVergne - previous candidate, district 3
As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I believe it is equally imperative that we address environmental issues—such as climate change—on a global scale. Global warming is a real threat and an increasing danger to our environment. All major greenhouse emitting countries need to cooperate in reducing and stabilizing atmospheric concentrations of these gases, and the United States must play a leadership role in bringing nations together for a global solution to climate change. - Chris Smith, House website
"The real question that still exists in a lot of people's minds, experts and non-experts alike, on the area of global warming and what role the government should have in this realm. ... I've heard a number of experts on both sides of the equation on this issue and to me the evidence, the question is still out there." - Scott Garrett
I want America to win the future. I want us to reap the economic benefits and the jobs that will go to whoever wins the race to a clean energy future. And how do our Republican colleagues propose to win that race? I've looked at their record in the years they controlled this House. I searched in vain for one Republican free market-based plan. What did I find? Nothing. Apart from a tax bill filled with giveaways to oil companies, and legislation to allow more oil drilling, to allow more methane emissions, to gut the Clean Air Act and to roll back the clean Power Plan. - Tom Malinowski, 2019
"I believe that climate change is real, and in the overwhelming scientific consensus that it is exacerbated by human activity. I support the Paris Climate Change Agreement and want the federal government to work with states to meet the voluntary commitments America made to reduce our emissions. I strongly oppose subsidies and other policies that artificially prop up fossil fuel industries, which hurt the environment and make no economic sense." - Tom Malinowski
Climate change is real and addressing it shouldn’t be a partisan issue. It’s an economic and national security issue that affects all of us. With 130 miles of coastline, New Jersey will pay a terrible price if we don’t take meaningful action to end our reliance on foreign fuels and transition to a clean energy economy. - Mikie Sherrill
"Do I believe in climate change? I do, yeah. With the weather patterns over the past five years. … What causes it? Quite honestly, I don’t know. … Humans have some effect on climate change. There’s so many factors." - Rodney Frelinghuysen, Previous representative, District 11, in 2011
"I recall being a young college student over 20 years ago first learning about the prospects of climate change. Our professors told us that if the use of fossil fuels and other man-made chemicals were not curtailed if not eclipsed entirely we would face Arctic ice melt, rising sea levels, intensive storms, extreme droughts and crop failures. It amazes me that despite being armed with this knowledge, our leaders in Washington did little to nothing to address these concerns. All of this and more has come true in the past 20 years." - Joseph Wenzel, 2016 candidate in district 11 in New Jersey
