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

United States House of Representatives, Utah
District 1: Blake Moore represents district 1. He has indicated he recognizes the climate issue and is in favor of approaching the problem from a Republican perspective.
We, as Republicans, have to change the conversation and highlight what we've been doing, what conservatives have been doing on this issue. The media is not going to just automatically do that. This is not an issue that we can shy away from. - Blake Moore, quoted by The Ripon Society
District 2: Chris Stewart represents district 2. He has, in the past, questioned climate science, and suggested his position was moderate. He has voted against the environment, and has stood against regulations to address climate change.
District 3: John Curtis represents district 3 in Utah. He seems to be attempting to find some shared ground on climate change.
A little over a year ago, I went in front of Utah’s most conservative think tank and criticized my colleagues who denied the science. And likewise, I took a shot at my colleagues on the left who want to 'take the head off to fix the headache.' That has launched me into the forefront of the dialogue, which I really appreciate. We can do so much better on both the right and the left on climate than what we're doing. This should be an area of strong bipartisan agreement. - John Curtis, quoted by The Ripon Society
Can we all agree that less pollution is better than more? Less carbon in the air is better? Less plastic in the ocean is better? Cleaner water is better? Cleaner air is better? Can we agree that we shouldn't waste resources and we should be more efficient? I can't imagine that there's a ton who would disagree with me. - John Curtis, quoted by Salt Lake Tribune
District 4: Burgess Owens /span> represents Utah's 4th district. He appears to acknowledge climate change, although it was not an issue in his campaign. He seems to favor a free market over regulations to address the issue.
The reason why we're doing so well in terms of bringing these issues down and making sure water is clean, our air is clean is because of the free market and process. The worst polluters in the world are China and India, where the free market is not as big a part of what they're doing. - Burgess Owens /span>, on climate change, quoted by KSL
