Delaney Applauds President's Plan on Climate Change, Calls for Congress to Act


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) attended President Obama's Tuesday speech on climate change at Georgetown University.

"In the face of irrefutable evidence, we have a moral obligation to act on climate change. We cannot willingly leave our children and grandchildren a damaged and instable world," said Congressman John K. Delaney. "Climate change is already here and changes are expected to accelerate. As a former entrepreneur, I understand that alternative energy production is an unmatched economic opportunity for our American innovators. Hundreds of thousands of jobs will be created in the energy sectors of the future; the only question is whether they will be on our own soil or abroad. I applaud the President's plan to implement commonsense solutions to reduce carbon emissions, encourage increased energy efficiency, and further green energy production. In Congress, we have more work to do, and I encourage my colleagues to work with the President and the private sector to initiate the comprehensive changes we need to protect our future health and create new jobs."
