WASHINGTON–(ENEWSPF)–March 10, 2016 — The following is a statement by Rhea Suh, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, on this morning’s joint U.S.-Canada announcement on climate, energy and the Arctic.
“This broad array of initiatives herald a new day in our cross-border partnership to combat dangerous climate change and transition to a cleaner and more prosperous economy. It also will protect our shared Arctic environment while supporting the indigenous communities who call it home. We look forward to working with the Obama and Trudeau administrations to translate these commitments into meaningful actions.”
