Missouri's Climate Change Deniers

Meet Missouri's climate change deniers.
Michael Byrne/Motherboard

Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO-02)

Climate change denier

"The field of climate science is in its relative infancy and it appears that some within the public policy world have made dubious assessments of scientific information in order to further their own political agenda. Our policy response to this dilemma should not be based on inconsistent and unsound science or driven by the fear of a supposed catastrophe."

Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO-03)

Climate change denier

"In the same month the regulatory plan was released, the president also pledged to give $3 billion in taxpayer funds to the United Nations' Green Climate Fund. Not only does he want to pile on more regulations, but he wants to fund feel-good conferences and engage in questionable science with your dollars."

Poor climate change voting record
