Statement from Carol M. Browner on Joe Biden’s Plans for Environmental Justice, Equitable Opportunity and a Clean Energy Future

Washington, DC – Carol M. Browner, former Administrator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and former director of the White House office of Energy and Climate Change Policy, and current Board Chair for the League of Conservation Voters and member of the Biden Campaign’s Climate Engagement Advisory Council, today issued the following statement in response to Joe Biden’s plans for an equitable and just clean energy future:

“For the last four years the United States has suffered under a failure of leadership in addressing the climate crisis, transitioning to the clean energy economy and cutting the pollution that threatens our health and environment. The last four years have undone decades of progress and it will take decades to recover. The plans Joe Biden released today demonstrate his commitment to environmental justice and equity and his vision for the clean energy future we need to put people back to work, to power our economy and our businesses, and to drive innovation that will foster growth, create jobs and protect our health. With Joe Biden science will matter and our health and economy will come first.”
