LCV Responds to Democratic Party Platform

Contact: Joshua McNeil, (202) 785-8683 or August 25, 2008  

DENVER - Today, at the opening of the Democratic National Convention, the Democratic Party adopted a new platform.  League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement:

"The Democratic Party Platform wisely embraces the energy plan put forward by Senator Obama, the strongest, most comprehensive plan ever put forward by a Presidential nominee.  Obama’s plan recognizes the enormous potential of renewable energy to end our addiction to oil, strengthen our national security, fight global warming, and create millions of jobs across America.   On this platform, Barack Obama and Joe Biden will build the clean energy future that America deserves."
