Washington, D.C. — After a year that saw President Obama act on his promise to address climate change, former EPA Administrator and Center for American Progress Distinguished Senior Fellow Carol M. Browner and League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski will look back on 2013 and look ahead to the state of climate action in 2014 during a press call this Friday, January 24th. The two will discuss the progress made with the Obama administration’s Climate Action Plan, milestones in 2014, and the upcoming elections.
President Obama described action on climate change as a priority in both his second inaugural address and his 2013 State of the Union, which was followed by the announcement of the administration’s Climate Action Plan last June. The EPA recently published its carbon pollution standard for new power plants in the Federal Register, and it is expected to release a standard for existing power plants this summer. With the climate action plan on track, this year is shaping up to be a key year for action on climate change.
