Forum: Congressional Candidates Positions on Climate Change | Elections


Our top scientific institutions, the U.S. military, NASA, NOAA, leading companies in the oil industry (including Shell and British Petroleum), Stephen Hawking, and nearly all credible scientists say pollution is causing our planet to get warmer. Despite the consensus among credible organizations and the already observable effects of climate change, a large portion of the population believes climate change is a 'hoax' or a 'liberal conspiracy'. False information designed to discredit climate science is actively promoted by organizations with ties to fossil fuels, and it is unacceptable that some leaders in Congress are facilitating the spread of ignorance for political reasons.

Representatives for Vermont in the United States Congress have an important role in supporting efforts to solve climate change. Let's see where your representatives in Congress stand on this issue.

Senator Leahy understands that human caused climate change is accelerating with each passing year, and is now taking an increasingly severe toll on our natural resources as well as nearly every aspect of our economy. - Patrick J. Leahy
Peter Welch represents VT in the U.S. House. He is a supporter of efforts to address climate change.
Climate change is real and has serious consequences for our economy, our livelihoods, and our health. You don't have to go any further than communities across Vermont to hear about its early impacts. Just ask the businesses and families wiped out by Tropical Storm Irene. Ask ski lift operators worried about losing their jobs as the season shortens. - Peter Welch
