Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections

Utah

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 Utah 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.

Neither of these senators for Utah support efforts to address the issue.

District 3: John Curtis represents district 3 in Utah. The newly elected representatives does not say much about climate change. Know his position? Please send us information on it.
District 4: Mia Love represents Utah's 4th district. To some extent, she acknowledges the issue of climate change and promotes herself as being in favor of finding solutions. However, she has voted against measures in Congress to address climate change. Most notably, she voted to end the Clean Power Plan, meaning she voted in favor of limiting the EPA's ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. Most serious supporters of efforts to address climate change would consider Mia Love an opponent based on these votes. Several candidates are lining up for the race for this seat in 2018.
