Evergreen: President Biden Offers Proven Results & Hopeful Vision on Climate

In response to President Biden’s State of the Union address, Evergreen Action Executive Director Lena Moffitt released the following statement:

“Tonight, President Biden told us what we can achieve by confronting climate change head on: hundreds of thousands of new jobs across the country and a wave of unprecedented investment in America’s future as a global clean energy leader. By putting climate and clean energy at the heart of his Investing in America agenda, the president has delivered historic pollution reductions and is driving down energy costs for working families. 

“President Biden stood with workers on the picket line and at every step of the policymaking process to make sure green jobs are good paying union jobs. And he’s building more on ramps to clean energy careers with historic programs like the American Climate Corps. There’s still more work to do to achieve the president’s science-based climate targets and support workers and communities in the clean energy future, and President Biden is the only candidate prepared to take us forward. We cannot afford to return to climate denial in the White House.”
