COLUMBIA — Members of Coal Free Mizzou walked Thursday from MU's Speakers Circle to U.S.  Sen. Claire McCaskill's office in downtown Columbia to deliver a letter protesting MU's use of coal. "We're wearing floaties, goggles and other beach attire to show how coal use causes global warming which leads to rising sea levels," said MU senior and protester Katie Reinarman.
