Black Caucus Honors Earth Day

Washington D.C. – Rep. BarbaraLee (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, released the following in recognition of the 40thobservance of Earth Day:

“Forty years ago today the world first observed Earth Day, a novel endeavor designed to raise awareness and appreciation for our planet’s vast yet delicate environment.

“During the past four decades,America and nations around the globe have made significant investments in air and water quality, reducing waste, increasing recycling and conserving energy.

“There is no question that in 2010 we are better stewards of the environment than we were in 1970. Yet we can and must do better.

“The world needs a comprehensive policy promoting renewable energy, energy efficiency and curbing greenhouse gas emissions, to mitigate the consequences of climate change as populations and the demand for resources grows.

“The Congressional Black Caucus is committed to working to develop strategies that make America more energy independent, while providing pathways to new economic opportunities in the Green economy.”
