Washington DC – Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund released the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld following Joe Biden’s powerful speech on the wildfires raging on the West Coast and the need to address the climate crisis and environmental injustice.
“Kudos to Vice President Biden for his very presidential speech about the devastating wildfires, the climate crisis, and the need to act as a nation. It is unconscionable for the Trump administration to continue to downplay and worsen the climate crisis, especially as the West is on fire and drowning in smoke during a respiratory pandemic. This record-breaking wildfire season is directly related to hotter and drier temperatures from climate change. Joe Biden is the leader we need to take on one of the most challenging and consequential issues of our time — a leader who believes in science and listens to the experts. It is imperative we elect him and other climate justice champions who will take immediate and equitable action on the climate crisis. We have 50 days left to make it happen.”
