LCV Statement on Climate Plan from Pete Buttigieg


Following the release of Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s Mobilizing America to Combat Climate Change plan, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“As Mayor, Buttigieg has advocated for clean energy, clean transportation, and more resilient and sustainable communities, and as a veteran, he is a strong voice for the addressing the climate crisis as a threat to national security. His climate plan would create three million high-paying clean energy and infrastructure jobs over ten years; renew and increase our pollution reduction goals under the Paris Climate Agreement; establish Next-Generation Regional Resilience Hubs to help communities prepare for and mitigate the impacts of climate change; and ensure frontline and indigenous communities benefit from the clean energy transition.”
