LCV Debates Energy in the 2012 Race

10 Sep 2012  |   Soham Pandit

Over the weekend, League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski appeared opposite the Heritage Foundation’s David Kreutzer on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to discuss the current state of U.S. energy policy and the emergence of America’s energy future as a political issue that’s shaping the post-convention election landscape as a clear choice between remarkably different candidates. Specifically, Gene notes that the Obama administration's recently finalized fuel efficiency standards will cut carbon pollution, create new jobs, reduce our dependence on oil, and save consumers money.

Gene also takes on anti-science climate deniers, saying "Anyone who thinks [climate change] is not a serious problem today and isn't going to get worse has their head in the sand."
