WASHINGTON - LCV President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the release of the third National Climate Assessment draft this afternoon:

"This draft report confirms what millions of Americans have been seeing right outside their window. Hurricane Sandy and the historic droughts, floods and heat waves happening across the country aren’t a fluke, but the result of a climate warming much faster than previously thought.  If we put off action on climate change, the costs of addressing its impacts will only rise and this extreme weather will be just the beginning. This report should serve as a wake-up call that it’s time to act.”
