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.
