Washington, D.C. — In response to the sixth Democratic primary debate, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“Finally! It’s so refreshing that the climate crisis was front and center in the first hour of tonight’s presidential debate. From the economic opportunities in solar, wind and clean transportation to international climate leadership to communities affected by fires and floods to the necessity of  prioritizing equity and justice, it was incredibly important to hear candidates discuss their vision and plans for transitioning to a 100 percent clean economy beginning on day one as president. Kudos to Politico and PBS NewsHour for giving climate change the attention it needs and deserves. We urge future debate hosts to follow their lead.”
