Washington, D.C. –  In response to the newly released climate action tracker and in recognition of the one year anniversary of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis’ Action Plan, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from LCV Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“What a difference a year makes! Kudos to Speaker Pelosi, Chair Castor, and the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis for their tireless leadership as we all strive to maximize progress on tackling the climate crisis and environmental injustice. The comprehensive plan they put forth a year ago today provides an excellent roadmap to make transformational climate progress that addresses environmental racism, creates high-quality, good-paying jobs, and builds a safe, healthy clean energy economy. Now Congress and the White House have a make-or-break opportunity to take the most significant federal action in history to combat the climate crisis. As a devastating heatwave grips the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest sits under water, and tropical storms batter the East Coast, we must meet the moment and get it done.”
