LCV Statement on Senator Rubio’s Energy Plan

Oct 16, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, presidential candidate Senator Marco Rubio officially unveiled his energy plan. In response, LCV Senior Vice President of Campaign Daniel J. Weiss issued the following statement:

“Florida Senator Rubio should understand better than most the impending threats posed by climate change, yet his energy plan will unleash waves of damage like those already flooding Miami’s streets. His plan would accelerate climate change just to protect the profits of the big polluters that fund his campaign. Meanwhile, his Florida constituents are especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, threatened by dramatic sea level rise and extensive flooding. By denying climate science, willfully misleading the public on the Clean Power Plan and doubling-down on dirty fossil fuels, his plan threatens the health and well-being of our families.”
