HOWARD LEARNER, ENVIRONMENTAL LAW & POLICY CENTER STATEMENT

ON PRESIDENT OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE

“The United States Supreme Court has twice confirmed the EPA’s statutory responsibility to reduce carbon pollution in order to protect our public health and environment.  President Obama is implementing the law and advancing common sense solutions to climate change realities and extreme weather events, which impose huge economic and social costs,” said Howard Learner, Executive Director of the Environmental Law & Policy Center.   “Solving global climate change problems is the moral, business, policy and political challenge of our generation.   The President is leading with focused solutions that are good for economic growth, good for job creation and good for our environment.”
