LCV Statement on Governor Kasich’s Energy Plan

Oct 15, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, GOP presidential candidate Governor John Kasich released his energy plan. In response, LCV Senior Vice President of Campaign Daniel J. Weiss issued the following statement:

“Gov. Kasich’s energy plan is a carbon doomsday machine – once it’s launched there is no stopping the damage to our climate. His moderate tone does nothing to hide that his plan is a big polluters’ wish list by eliminating the Clean Power Plan to prioritize their profits over the health of our families. Like many other ‘all-of-the-above’ plans, Kasich’s cookie cutter agenda doubles-down on fossil fuels, ignoring the devastating impacts of climate change like extreme weather, worse smog, and more sea level rise.”
