"There isn't any real science to say we are altering the climate path of the earth." - past statement by Senator Roy Blunt from Missouri
The Paris Agreement seeks to eliminate the use of coal, an affordable energy source that Missourians have historically relied on to power more than 80% of our electricity. Getting rid of coal means higher energy prices. It amounts to a new energy tax on anyone who flips a light switch, buys groceries or harvests a crop. - Roy Blunt, 2021, opinion to SBJClaire McCaskill, who lost the seat in 2018, accepted that climate change is real but she was not supportive of legislation intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

"Our policy response to this dilemma should not be based on inconsistent and unsound science..." - past statement, Ann Wagner, Missouri
"Enjoying another beautiful global warming day in Missouri! Rep. Skelton and the UN Summit need to quit their dist. of wealth for a hoax." - Vicky Hartzler, Missouri
The climate is changing (& has for millennia). Debate over man's role, if any. I think when God destroys the earth, we'll know it and it won't be a long process of melting ice caps. - Vicky Hartzler, on Twitter, 2019
"Climate change does not have to be a partisan issue. It is about people. If we continue down the road we are on without taking action on climate change, people will suffer. There can be a path to protect people from the negative effects of climate change, if we come together to achieve it." - Emanuel Cleaver on Facebook
We must address the changing climate, but do so in sensible ways. My Republican colleagues and I are committed to reducing carbon emissions by encouraging technological innovations in renewable energy that create jobs and prosperity for Americans. If signed into law, the Green New Deal would do the exact opposite. - Billy Long, House website, 2019
