Senate : Colorado
- Gardner took more than $694,000 in contributions from the oil and gas industry while repeatedly voting to protect their tax breaks, subsidies and giveaways.
- Gardner repeatedly denied the overwhelming scientific consensus that humans are the driving force behind climate change. He voted to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from limiting carbon emissions from power plants, the nation’s largest source of the pollution driving climate change.
- Gardner recently voted for a bill that would slash investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency while boosting funding for dirty fossil fuels. The legislation also limits the Army Corps of Engineers’ ability to safeguard the water Americans depend on for drinking, swimming, fishing, and flood protection.
- Gardner’s lifetime score is just 9 percent on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
