Feb 13, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement on the occasion of John Podesta, Senior Counselor to the President’s, last day in the position: 

“From supporting clean energy jobs, to reducing carbon pollution, to helping negotiate historic agreements with China, to promoting new national monuments, John Podesta did more for climate change and conservation in a little over 400 days than Congress has in the last four years. We are confident that with President Obama’s strong commitment to climate action and our natural heritage, and an All-Star team in the administration, John’s legacy will have lasting impact. We are equally confident and excited about the great work John will continue to do in the future.”
