DNC Chair Jaime Harrison and DNC Environment and Climate Crisis Council Chair Michelle Regalado Deatrick issued the following statement on Earth Day:
“Today, on the 51st Earth Day, we celebrate all those who have tirelessly advocated for a clean, safe, and sustainable world. From rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement to today committing the United States to an ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction target, the Biden administration has reclaimed America’s position as a world leader in the fight to combat the climate crisis.
“President Biden and Democrats understand we can’t wait another moment to respond to the reality of climate change. From Day One, President Biden, Secretary Kerry and the Biden-Harris Climate team have worked to undo the damage done by the Trump administration and put our country, and our world, back on a path towards a more sustainable and greener future.
“Let today and every day serve as a reminder that we all must do our part to create an environmentally sustainable planet for future generations to enjoy.”
