LCV Statement on President Obama’s Executive Actions on Solar Energy & Energy Efficiency

May 9, 2014

WASHINGTON DC — League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement today on President Obama’s executive actions to advance solar energy and energy efficiency: 

“This is good news for businesses, consumers and our environment. President Obama’s executive actions will help cut carbon pollution and create jobs and are especially welcome news on the heels of the National Climate Assessment that made clear we need to act swiftly to fight climate change. If the public and private sector can come together like this to advance clean energy and reduce energy waste, then it’s time for climate change deniers in Congress to stop blocking action and start doing the same.”
