Environment Missouri Research & Policy Center
Clean water to drink and clean air to breathe; healthy beaches, lakes and rivers that are safe for swimming and fishing; preserved open spaces; clean sources of energy that don’t pollute and never run out — all this should be the heritage we leave to future generations. Our staff research the issues, educate the public, and win tangible results.
Investigating problems and crafting solutions
Doing the research: Extreme Weather Extreme weather events lead to loss of life and billions of dollars in economic damage. What’s more, scientists predict that global warming could increase the frequency of such events in the future. Our new report, "Global Warming and Extreme Weather," shined a light on what could become "the new normal," if we fail to avert the worst effects of global warming.
Educating the public and making our voices heard
Protecting our clean water resources: Our waterways, like the streams that feed the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, are being threatened by pollution — that's why Environment Missouri is educating citizens across the state about the threats facing our waters and working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ensure that all our rivers, lakes and streams are fully protected under the Clean Water Act.
