LCV Statement on National Climate Assessment 

Nov 14, 2023

Washington, D.C. — In response to today’s release of the Fifth National Climate Assessment from the Biden-Harris administration and announcement of $6 billion in investments for climate resilience and environmental justice, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“The latest National Climate Assessment shows how climate impacts are worsening across the country, especially in historically excluded communities disproportionately burdened by the climate crisis and toxic pollution. Even after the hottest summer on record, rampant wildfires, flooding, and extreme weather this year, extremist MAGA Republicans have continued to attack critical climate and clean energy investments that benefit their constituents, including those passed in the Inflation Reduction Act. We commend the Biden-Harris administration for its continued leadership in fighting the climate crisis and welcome today’s announcement about investing $6 billion in climate resilience and environmental justice, and look forward to seeing those investments in action.”
