NRDC to Senate Climate Obstructionists: Stop Blocking Our Future

WASHINGTON - July 22 - Following is a statement from David Hawkins, Director of Climate Programs at the Natural Resources Defense Council:

"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today delivered very bad news to the American people.  Continuing obstructionism by the Senate Republican leadership, joined by a handful of Democratic senators, is still blocking the way forward on essential clean energy and climate legislation.  

"It is time for all of us to make our voices heard.  Over the recess we must deliver a message to senators: ‘Do your job!  We face a triple threat of a stagnant economy, ballooning energy insecurity, and a climate that is coming apart.  Don't fail us.  Don't fail our children.  Don't come home again without having tackled these real and present dangers.'"'
