WASHINGTON - LCV President Gene Karpinski released this statement following President Obama’s call to action on climate change during his Inauguration speech today, remarking that "we will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations:"
"The President's remarks offered great hope for a cleaner, more sustainable planet for future generations. President Obama made the link between climate change and extreme weather and called on America to lead the clean energy revolution. His continued commitment to clean technologies and protecting our planet will build on an already strong environmental legacy. We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration to ensure that clean energy jobs are built here at home while reducing harmful global warming pollution.”
