Leading Environmental Groups Show Their Support for Comprehensive Climate and Clean Energy Policy

Today 22 leading environmental groups released the following statement in support of moving forward on comprehensive clean energy and climate policy. The groups are urging both congress and the President to lead our nation into a clean energy future.

“Today’s action by Senators John Kerry (Mass.) and Joe Lieberman (Conn.) jumpstarts the Senate debate over America’s energy future.  Their unwavering leadership has been critical to the progress made thus far.   It is time for America’s leaders to get serious about a comprehensive clean energy and climate policy that will reduce our oil dependence, enhance our security, revitalize our economy and protect our environment.

Every day the Senate fails to pass comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation we put our economy, our national security and our environment at greater risk.  Americans overwhelmingly support action on clean energy and climate. Inaction is too costly, and the challenge is too urgent.  The Gulf Coast oil catastrophe is yet another reminder that the United States must reduce its dependence on oil to protect our security, economy and environment.

The millions of Americans we represent demand a Senate vote on comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation.  President Obama and leaders of both parties in Congress must provide the leadership necessary to develop a clean energy and climate solution that becomes law this year.”
