WASHINGTON – Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election. Coinciding with the endorsement, LCV released a web video highlighting President Obama’s record of taking on the Big Oil companies and investing in clean energy.
“Elections are about choices – and for those who care about building a clean energy economy and confronting the climate crisis, the choice is clear: President Obama is a clean energy champion and Mitt Romney is a climate denier,” said LCV President Gene Karpinski. “While President Obama has fought to put Americans in control of our energy future, Mitt Romney and his Big Oil buddies would take us back to the failed dirty energy policies of the past.”
President Obama has made great strides toward building a clean energy economy and protecting our environment for future generations. The president’s first-term accomplishments include:
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney has fully embraced the House Republican leadership’s Big Oil agenda.
“Mitt Romney is the first major party nominee in our nation’s history to side with the ‘Flat Earthers’ in rejecting the scientific consensus on climate change,” said Karpinski. “Given Romney’s embrace of ‘oil above all,’ it’s not surprising that Big Oil plans to spend big money for the candidate who would protect their big profits.”
