WWF Statement on President Obama’s State of the Union Address

In response to this evening’s State of the Union Address, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) issued the following statement from Todd Shelton, vice president for government relations:

“President Obama presented a forceful case for climate action. This is critically important in a year when there will be a major international agreement on climate change and the world is looking for US leadership. Tonight’s words not only signal that climate change is a legacy issue for the President, but it is also a clear and present danger to America’s national security. Now, he must continue his push to reduce the United States’ greenhouse gas pollution and work with Congress to fully fund our promised fair share of the Green Climate Fund.”
