Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

North Dakota

Our top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, and other 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 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.

United States Senate
Updated 2019
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
Kevin Cramer, who denies humans are causing climate change, now represents North Dakota in the Senate. 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.
"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
House of Representatives, North Dakota

District 1: Kelly Armstrong represents North Dakota in Congress. Kelly Armstrong is invested in the oil and gas industry and has yet to demonstrate support for efforts to address climate change. Kevin Cramer, who denies humans are causing climate change, previously represented the state in the House. He now represents North Dakota in the Senate.
