LCV Statement on Senate Votes on Climate Change

Jan 21, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement on votes in the Senate today on amendments acknowledging the reality of climate change:

“Senator Schatz’s amendment today made clear that a bipartisan majority supports the science on climate change. But far too many Senators are afraid to stand up to their polluter allies. At the same time, Republican leaders in the House are pretending the President’s forceful call to action on climate change last night doesn’t even exist. The overwhelming majority of Americans understand that the facts on climate change are clear and want Washington to act.”
