Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections
The U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, and our top scientific institutions 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.
