EPA Endangerment Finding and Green Party Candidate Dennis Spisak for Governor : Progress for a Better Ohio
In a major climate development, the EPA yesterday formally determined that greenhouse gas pollution imperils the health and well-being of present and future generations. This finding sets the stage for U.S. and Ohio action.
EDF President Fred Krupp issued the following statement:
“The danger of global warming pollution is clear and present, the solutions are at hand, and the time for action is now. It’s time for Congress to finish its work on U.S. legislation to cap and reduce the 19 million tons of heat-trapping pollution we emit every day. American leadership on climate change will strengthen our security, wean us off of foreign oil, and ensure that America wins the race to clean energy innovation in the global market place.”
Green Party candidate for Governor Dennis Spisak announced “This is a great moment for the state of Ohio to move forward in creating renewable energy jobs, companies, and industry. Spisak added, “No longer will Ohioans have to live with mercury in our air and water from dirty coal plants. We can move forward in building solar, wind turbines, and geothermal plants while showing dirty coal lobbyists the exit doors at the statehouse.”
