Washington, D.C. – Today, in reaction to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Speech, the Center for American Progress released the following statement from Carol M. Browner, CAP Distinguished Senior Fellow and former Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency:

“Tonight’s speech is a big win for those who want action on climate change and believe now is the time to act.  The president was clear about the magnitude of the challenge and resolute in his determination to use his executive authority to take action, especially if Congress won’t.  He pledged to build on the achievements of his first term, including historic standards for clean cars and energy efficiency, and he laid down a strong marker that he intends to continue investments in clean energy technology as part of our economic recovery.”
