Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI-02) 

Climate change denier

"I do not believe that further congressional action is needed to address climate change, especially via the job killing "Cap and Trade" legislation. Today's global warming doomsayers simply lack the scientific evidence to support their claims. A host of leaders in the scientific community have recognized that the argument for drastic anthropogenic global warming is no longer based on science, but is being driven by irrational fanaticism."

Poor climate change voting record

Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI-06) 

Climate change denier

"We've experienced climate change for a long time, highs and lows. We had the coldest winter ever last winter. There was a report out that the Great Lakes are six degrees below what they were a year ago. I don't know that climate scientists can really predict where we're headed."

Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI-07) 

Climate change denier

"I read scientists, editors—at least equal on both sides—that say there's a cycle, that significant warming that's produced by human involvement… I read on the other side an equal number, at the very least, that say just the opposite. That this something that's gone on for eons; that we go through these cycles."
