Mar 31, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement on the United States’ submission to the United Nations to cut the pollution driving climate change by up to 28 percent below 2005 levels in 2025.

“This commitment sends another important signal to the world that tackling climate change is a very top priority for President Obama. Building on game changing announcements like the one unveiled with China last year, countries are coming together to tackle this challenge – for the sake of our health, our economy, and our future. The need to act on climate change has never been more obvious or more urgent, and we are thrilled that the president continues to lead the charge both at home and abroad.”
