Washington, D.C. — In response to the announcement of the Biden-Harris administration’s slate of environmental champions, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statements: 

“As we often say at LCV, elections have consequences, and President-elect Joe Biden’s dream team of climate champions makes that abundantly clear,” LCV President Gene Karpinski. “These visionary leaders will ensure that the Biden-Harris administration fights hard every single day for the health of all communities and centers bold climate action in racial justice and equity. We know personnel is policy, and we are thrilled to work with this historic administration that better reflects our diversity to address the interwoven climate, racial, economic, and health crises with a whole-of-government approach and build a safer and healthier planet for our future generations. Inauguration Day can’t come soon enough — we’re ready to get to work.”

“Joe Biden has nominated a team of climate change-makers who will deliver on his promise to tackle the climate crisis,” said LCV Board Chair and Former EPA Administrator Carol M. Browner. “By nominating these leaders, President Elect Biden and Vice President Elect Harris are signaling to the world that the United States is serious about expanding clean energy and reducing the carbon pollution that drives climate change and serious about leading by example.  Clean energy, climate change, justice and protecting our health are central to the Biden plan to rebuild our economy.”
