WASHINGTON – Although Senator Scott Brown claimed he was concerned about climate change in the debate tonight, he actually voted to permanently block the EPA from addressing dangerous global warming pollution.   

"Scott Brown professed to care about climate change, but last year he voted to permanently block scientists at the EPA from holding polluters accountable and limiting harmful global warming pollution," said Navin Nayak, Senior Vice President of Campaigns at the League of Conservation Voters. "A vote for Scott Brown is a vote to give the country's biggest climate denier another ally in the Senate."

With a feeble 22%, Brown has far and away the worst lifetime ranking of any member of Massachusetts’ Congressional delegation on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard, a non-partisan, nationally accepted yardstick used to rate members of Congress on environmental and clean energy issues.
