WASHINGTON, DC –League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released the following statement regarding today’s Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee hearing examining the latest science on climate change and efforts to respond to its impacts:

“We applaud Chairman Barbara Boxer and members of the EPW Committee for holding this hearing today. The science surrounding climate change is indisputable, and Americans are seeing its impacts firsthand through record-setting temperatures, droughts and extreme storms. Climate change is threatening our environment, economy, and public health. It’s time for Congress to act, and this hearing should become a stepping stone towards future legislative action.”
