Gene Karpinski, president of the League of Conservation Voters, issued a statement Monday praising President Barack Obama for focusing on climate change during his second inaugural address.
"The President's remarks offered great hope for a cleaner, more sustainable planet for future generations. President Obama made the link between climate change and extreme weather and called on America to lead the clean energy revolution. His continued commitment to clean technologies and protecting our planet will build on an already strong environmental legacy. We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration to ensure that clean energy jobs are built here at home while reducing harmful global warming pollution.”
