Washington, D.C.- Following the release of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s Climate Change Moonshot, the League of Conservation Voters released the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:


“Senator Gillibrand is right; the climate crisis is the most serious threat we face and her plan outlines the kind of ambitious steps we must take to fight it. By achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, holding polluters accountable, phasing out fossil fuels, investing in our green jobs economy, and centering frontline communities, Gillibrand’s plan builds on her strong record of climate leadership in Congress. Voters want a candidate who is ready to tackle the climate crisis on day one, and every candidate who is serious about becoming our next president must prioritize this threat.”
