“The President said it exactly right: ‘We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations.’

“We at EDF share the sense of urgency President Obama described. We are fully focused on working with him and many others to achieve climate security and American clean energy innovation.”
