Mar 11, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC –League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski released this statement on Senator Angus King’s leadership during the Senate’s series of all-night speeches pressing for action on climate change:

“We’re thrilled that Senator King joined with 30 colleagues from across the country to stand up to corporate polluters and give a voice to Mainers demanding action on climate change. Maine is already seeing climate impacts, including less productive fisheries, rising sea levels and less winter snowfall. We congratulate Senator King on his leadership and will continue working with him to push for action to confront the climate crisis.”
