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 New Mexico in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue.

Senators Martin Heinrich and Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico both support efforts to combat climate change and develop alternative energy.
We need to act. Mother Earth needs our help. And it’s going to be incumbent for all of us to come together. - Ben Ray Lujan, quote by Santa Fe New Mexican
U.S. House of Representatives, New Mexico

District 1: Debra Haaland represents district 1 for New Mexico. She supports efforts in congress on climate change.
District 2: District 2 includes Las Cruces and the southern part of New Mexico. Yvette Herrell represents district 2. While acknowledging climate change, Yvette Herrell has spoken against some of the proposals in Congress to address the climate problem. Steve Pearce previously represented this district by questioning whether humans cause climate change.
I believe our farmers and energy producers have been, and will continue to be, good stewards of our land, because the land is their livelihoods. We need commonsense regulations that promote that stewardship, not radical government takeovers like the Green New Deal. - Yvette Herrell, quoted by Albuquerque Journal
"I googled this issue a couple of days ago, see that there are 31,000 scientists who say that human action is not causing the global warming at all. And in fact the last 17 years there has not been global warming, the temperature has been very stable for the last 17 years." - Steve Pearce, past statement
District 3: Teresa Leger Fernandez represents district 3 in New Mexico by supporting efforts in Congress to solve climate change.
Climate change is an existential crisis. Congress must act to reduce carbon pollution, invest in wind and solar, and pass clean energy tax incentives while reducing fossil fuel subsidies. The U.S. must rejoin the Paris Agreement. The Sierra Club endorsed me as the environmental champion in this race. - Teresa Leger Fernandez, quoted in Albuquerque Journal
