“We are grateful to Nancy for her service heading the Council on Environmental Quality. The Obama administration has taken important steps to address climate change and other environmental threats during her tenure. She has led a number of those efforts, including elevating the importance of climate-smart strategies to prepare for the impacts of climate change. We thank her for her work preserving the natural systems on which all life depends, and for being a tireless voice for the environment inside the White House.”

- Elizabeth Thompson, President of EDAF
