President Obama speaking on climate change, June 2013

The action steps President Obama announced in his speech this week are a turning point in the fight against climate change. After months of calling on the President to move forward with life-saving measures to protect our children, our nation and the world from the damaging effects of climate change, I was proud to stand by while he announced his plan to cut carbon pollution. 

Join me and thank President Obama for taking historic steps toward fighting climate change.

The President’s plan contains many important elements, but cutting carbon pollution from power plants is the central and critical component. Not only will this reduce the risks from climate change but it will improve the air our children and seniors breathe. The League is proud to stand in support of the President’s plan to cut carbon pollution from power plants.

The President’s announcement was a turning point in the climate change fight. Join us and support the President as he moves ahead to fulfill his commitment to people, not polluters.
