(Washington, D.C. – February 12, 2013) In response to President Obama’s proposals in tonight’s State of the Union address to fight climate change, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is launching a multi-state TV ad campaign to support that goal.

“The President knows carbon pollution is leading to costly storms, more asthma, and dangerous changes to our climate,” said EDF climate communications director Keith Gaby. “Right now there are no limits on this kind of pollution from some of its largest sources, and we are very encouraged that the President recognizes the need to take action. We strongly support the President’s goal of reducing carbon pollution. This ad campaign is intended to show the American public what’s at stake.”

The television ad campaign will run for the next two weeks in Washington, D.C., North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado, Ohio, Maine, and Iowa. Spanish language versions will run on Univision.
