“In the immediate aftermath of President Obama’s inspiring words in the State of the Union address, Senators Bernie Sanders and Barbara Boxer have introduced comprehensive climate legislation in the U.S. Senate. We are thankful to them for taking the initiative on this critical issue.

“We need bold action from Congress, the White House and the states to protect ourselves, and future generations, from the dangers of climate change. I hope more of our lawmakers will join the effort to pass meaningful climate legislation.”
