WWF Statement on House of Representatives Vote to Block Clean Power Plan

In response to today’s House of Representatives vote to block the Clean Power Plan, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) issued the following statement from Lou Leonard, vice president, climate change:

“With Americans of all stripes demanding climate action, today’s House vote is political theater without an audience. The world has moved on from these kinds of Washington games.

“Today's drama in Washington will not derail the growing momentum in Paris, where President Obama and 150 heads of state are setting the stage for a new global climate accord that will lead us to a more prosperous future."
