LCV Statement on the Release of the National Climate Assessment

May 6, 2014

WASHINGTON DC — League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement today following the release of the third National Climate Assessment (NCA): 

“This report makes the real world impacts of climate change crystal clear. It’s a wakeup call for those who deny climate change is happening and underscores why we must limit carbon pollution from power plants, our nation’s dirtiest polluters. We’re going to keep working with President Obama to combat the climate crisis by enacting his Climate Action Plan and finally holding power plants accountable for the dangerous carbon pollution they spew into our air.”
