NWF: Obama climate goals call for all of the above on carbon pollution cuts

President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union address last night, reiterating his commitment to industrial carbon pollution standards and declaring, “Climate change is a fact.”

earth-newLarry Schweiger, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation, said today:

“President Obama made clear that despite years of attacks from big polluters and their allies, his vision for winning our climate challenge remains clear and his commitment to protecting our children’s future is stronger than ever.

“To achieve those climate goals, President Obama will need an all of the above approach to cutting carbon pollution. That means new protections from industrial carbon pollution and new investments in America’s booming clean energy industry, building wind turbines off our coasts and installing solar panels on our homes, businesses and schools. But it also means making hard choices, rejecting new giveaways for big polluters and keeping high-carbon fuels in the ground on America’s public lands.

“By protecting America’s wildlife, clean air and water, and pristine public lands, President Obama can leave a lasting conservation legacy that benefits all Americans. The National Wildlife Federation’s millions of members and supporters are eager to see him get to work.”
