2013-2014 Elections Moving the Climate Fight Forward

There’s no getting around the fact that the 2014 midterm election results were quite disappointing for climate champions in many places, but it doesn’t change the fact that the urgency to fight the climate crisis grows every day and that Americans want action. Even in this election, concerns about climate change continued to grow – so much so that many climate action opponents shifted from outright denying climate science to dodging the issue by claiming “I’m not a scientist.” This cycle, LCV invested more in elections than ever before, and despite the disappointing outcome of the election, there were bright moments for the fight against climate change, bright moments that the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and our partner state LCVs will build from as we forge ahead in addressing climate change. To be clear, anti-environment candidates won despite their position on climate change, not because of it. The climate crisis isn’t going away, and neither are we.
