Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill is not a climate change denier. She acknowledges that global warming is real, but she stops there and fails to embrace any policies to address the climate crisis.
Moreover, she continues to support the expansion of the use of dirty fossil fuels. She backs the Keystone XL and Flanagan South tar sands pipelines, fracking for gas and oil, offshore drilling in the Artic and continued use of dirty coal. Policies such as these will only accelerate and exacerbate the climate crisis.
Clean energy advocates from Mid-Missouri Peaceworks have requested a meeting with the Senator to discuss effective actions to address climate change, but, to date, the Senator has not scheduled a meeting with us.
