Washington, D.C. — In response to former Vice President Joe Biden’s Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice, the League of Conservation Voters released the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“We applaud Vice President Biden for putting forward a strong plan and powerful video about the urgent need to combat the climate crisis. By committing to ambitious goals, including net zero emissions and a 100% clean energy economy no later than 2050, prioritizing environmental justice for the communities hit first and worst by climate impacts and toxic pollution, creating good-paying jobs, and pledging not to take contributions from the fossil fuel industry, Biden is building on his longtime commitment to a clean energy economy. Climate action is a top issue for voters across the country, and all candidates who are serious about becoming our next president must put forward a bold vision to address this crisis.”
