"The President has made a great choice in bringing John Podesta back to the White House. I've worked with John on environmental issues for years and I know he will be a tremendous asset as the President implements his Climate Action Plan. Everyone knows John's strategic brilliance, but fewer know of his long-standing and passionate commitment to clean air, clean water and a healthy climate." — Elizabeth Thompson, President of EDAF
