Green America Recognizes the House Passage of ACES as a First Step, Seeks Strengthened Bill in the Senate

Posted by Trish Riley, July 7, 2009

Three cheers for this statement which addresses our concerns about the ACES bill but also acknowledges the importance of making this first step toward pollution abatement.

“The world needs real U.S. climate leadership. ACES is a start, but we have a long way to go for legislation that addresses the scale and scope of the climate crisis. The progress we’ve made so far has resulted from tens of thousands of citizens and businesses nationwide calling for action on climate change that meets the scale of the problem,” said Todd Larsen, Green America’s Director of Corporate Responsibility. “We look to the Senate to really step up to the plate. The future of our economy and our society hangs in the balance.”
