LCV Happy To Jog Blunt's Memory About Oil Company Support

Happy to spar with Roy Blunt about their "Stain" ad, the League of Conservation Voters launched a new radio ad today titled "Forgot." Listen:

With the new spot, the LCV also breaks down Blunt's opposition to meaningful climate legislation in Congress: 

Contrary to Rep. Blunt’s claims, the American Clean Energy & Security Act, which the congressman voted against when it passed the U.S. House of Representatives earlier this year, would help create nearly 36,000 clean energy jobs in Missouri. [2] The legislation would also reduce our dangerous dependence on foreign oil and place limits on harmful carbon pollution. (Rep. Blunt also voted against in the American Clean Energy & Security Act when it passed out of the House Energy & Commerce Committee.)

Additionally, despite the congressman’s claims of supporting wind and solar power, Rep. Blunt has repeatedly said “no” when it comes to clean energy. [3] In fact, when it very clearly came down to choosing between job-creating tax incentives for clean energy or protecting Big Oil’s profits, Rep. Blunt chose to protect Big Oil’s profits and continue billions in taxpayer-funded giveaways. [4]


Rep. Blunt’s record of siding with Big Oil over clean energy jobs stands in sharp contrast to public support for clean energy in Missouri. Nearly seven out of 10 Missourians support comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation, according to a recently released Pew poll of statewide voters. [5] Last year, voters in Missouri overwhelming approved a state-level Renewable Electricity Standard (Prop C, 66% yes vote), which requires investor-owned utilities to generate or purchase 15% of their electricity from clean energy sources, such solar, wind and biomass.
