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 North Dakota in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve the issue.

Sen. John Hoeven represents North Dakota with a view that has evolved from questioning climate change to his current position, which now acknowledges climate change exists but is still supportive of fossil fuel development.
"Well, the science shows that there's warming. There's different opinions of exactly what's causing it." - past statement, Sen. John Hoeven on Climate Change
Kevin Cramer, who has in the past cast doubt on climate change science, now represents North Dakota in the Senate. His statements have evolved and more recently he says he supports an all-of-the-above energy, which includes continued fossil fuel use.
"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
Senator Cramer believes in an all-of-the-above energy approach that responsibly develops the natural resources North Dakota and the nation possess. North Dakota is now the 2nd largest oil producer in the nation and we possess extensive coal reserves. - Kevin Cramer Senate website
House of Representatives, North Dakota

District 1: Kelly Armstrong represents North Dakota in Congress. Kelly Armstrong is reported to have been invested in the oil and gas industry and has yet to demonstrate support for efforts to regulate greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. When asked about climate, he has spoken of technology solutions to lessen emissions while continuing to support development of fossil fuels.
Thanks in large part to fracking in #NorthDakota's #Bakken oil patch, America is energy secure. Fracking has also strengthened our national security, created millions of jobs, and has helped us reduce our carbon emissions. - Kelly Armstrong, on Twitter 2020
