Washington, DC: In response to President Trump’s nomination of Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Tiernan Sittenfeld, SVP of Government Affairs:

“Though not surprising, this is extremely troubling. Climate change is one of the most critical threats facing our nation and world, and the Secretary of State has a huge responsibility to make sure it is addressed by the global community. With a history of questioning the science of climate change, a close relationship with the polluter Koch brothers and lifetime LCV score of 4%, Mike Pompeo has no business becoming the next Secretary of State.”
