Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

North Dakota

Our top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, leading companies in the oil industry (including Shell and British Petroleum), and nearly all 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 fossil fuels, and many leaders in Congress are also spreading disinformation for political reasons. While fossil fuel companies are generating enormous profits, we ultimately will bear the costs associated with extreme weather and rising sea levels. Representatives for North Dakota in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue. We've researched every district and made it easy for you to lookup your representatives' positions on climate. Enter an address in the form below to find your House representative.

United States Senate
Updated February 3, 2018
Sen. John Hoeven represents North Dakota with a view that has evolved from denying climate change exists to his current position, which now acknowledges it exists but challenges the findings of science, which has concluded that humans cause it.
"Well, the science shows that there's warming. There's different opinions of exactly what's causing it." - Sen. John Hoeven on Climate Change
Heidi Heitkamp is North Dakota's other senator. Her record on climate change is mixed, but mostly poor. She's supported a few initiatives and she acknowledges climate change is happening, but is opposed to regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.
House of Representatives, North Dakota

District 1: Kevin Cramer represents North Dakota in Congress. Kevin Cramer does not accept that humans are causing climate change, and opposes efforts to address the problem. In Kevin Cramer's view, climate change is bogus, and free people should be able to pollute in order to sell electricity to other people. So far, Ben Hanson is challenging for this position as a Democrat in 2018.
"The manipulation of free markets by economic policy disguised as environmental policy based on inconclusive science should not be tolerated. Free people producing energy other free people want and are willing to pay for should be the core of U.S. energy policy." - Kevin Cramer
