“John Kasich is right that climate change is a danger to our economy and our kids’ future. As reports about his speech made clear, no political party can afford to run away from the facts, especially with so much at stake. I’m particularly pleased that Governor Kasich supports limiting pollution and using the power of the market to move us to clean energy.

“Leadership from Governor Kasich, and others in his party who are working on responsible solutions, is absolutely necessary if we’re going to solve this problem. To pass comprehensive climate legislation that is effective and durable we need support from both parties. Progressives and conservatives should both bring their best ideas forward so we can find solutions that will let us build a clean, prosperous future for our country.”
