Do You Care About Acknowledging and Addressing Climate Change?

Then here is whom to vote for on November 4!

What is it?

  • The world decided in 1992 how to address Climate Change: the "Rio Declaration" laid out a framework for reducing CO2 emissions; and the 1997 "Kyoto Protocol" laid out specific reductions for industrialized countries. The United States never ratified the Kyoto Protocol, and since the U.S. is responsible for 35% of all CO2 emissions, the Kyoto Protocol has become meaningless (or at best, "voluntary guidelines").

  • We usually list "recent legislation" in this spot, but there IS no recent legislation to address climate change, because it was so decisively killed in the U.S. Senate. In the past 10 years, the only bills that reached a vote in Congress were to OPPOSE addressing climate change (detailed below). Some recent proposals, to illustrate the shift:

  • The opposition has successfully focused on questioning the scientific basis of global warming; pointing out on the high cost of cap-and-trade; and making a patriotic call for "domestic energy", i.e., increasing oil and gas drilling. This successful opposition means that supporters cannot address climate change directly.

  • The supporters of addressing climate change therefore have focused on related issues, while "educating" the public about climate science to undermine the opposition in the long-term. We include two related issues in our survey: The Keystone XL Pipeline, about domestic oil & gas drilling; and Renewable Energy, about green alternatives to oil & gas drilling.

How does it get passed?

It takes 218 Congresspersons to pass a climate change bill in the House of Representatives. It takes 60 Senators in the Senate (a super-majority is needed on this issue, to avoid filibusters).

What's happened so far?

The most decisive Senate vote took place in 1997: (prohibiting signing the Kyoto Protocol), passed the Senate in a shutout, with 95 votes to zero.

The last major House amendment, (Prohibits Funds from Being Used for Certain Climate Change Reports), bars even REPORTING on climate change; it passed the House with 231 votes.

Another major House amendment addressed why in its long title: the (American Energy Solutions for Lower Costs and More American Jobs Act) passed the House with 226 votes in The Senate. Supporters of addressing climate change only need 18 more House votes to block the next bill on this topic.

What will the candidates running in my area on November 4 do?

You'll see below the names of everyone running, for whom we can predict their vote on this issue. They are organized alphabetically by State in one of the two lists below!

The PRO list are those running in 2014 who have supported addressing climate change.

The CON list are those running in 2014 who have opposed addressing climate change.

An interpretation key appears at the bottom.

Get your friends and family and friends on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere to help elect 218 and 60 and Climate Change laws will pass!

    How to interpret this page

  • The list above includes candidates for Senate and House seats in 2014.
  • All of the above ratings are based on multiple sources of information.
  • The sources of information include legislative votes; bill sponsorships; group ratings; campaign websites; campaign debates; and biographical books.
  • Each information source is rated as supporting the topic, or opposing the topic.
  • The number of opposing sources is subtracted from the number of supporting sources; if the net sum is positive, the candidate counts as "Pro"; if negative, the candidate counts as "Con."
  • Click on the candidate's name to see the list of information sources, and whether we rate is as supporting or opposing.
  • Click on the date of each information source to see a full excerpt and context.

    Key for Pro votes:
  • An aboslute YES vote: 5 or more net supporting information sources, indicating consistent and long-standing support
  • A solid YES vote: 3 or 4 net supporting information sources, indicating substantive support
  • A likely YES vote: 1 or 2 net supporting information sources, indicating some support but not enough for certitude.
  • If a candidate has a net zero supporting information sources (or no information sources), that candidate is not listed above at all.

    Key for Con votes:
  • An absolute NO vote: 5 or more net opposinginformation sources, indicating consistent and long-standing opposition
  • A solid NO vote: 3 or 4 net opposing information sources, indicating substantive opposition
  • A likely NO vote: 1 or 2 net opposing information sources, indicating some opposition but not enough for certitude.


  • The above list is not fully inclusive; many House challengers are not included, but all House incumbents are eligibla.
  • All major-party Senate candidates (and incumbents) are eligible; and most Senate challengers are, too.
  • Some of the candidates listed above lost in the primary, but are still listed.
