The President of the United States yesterday laid out in detail the environmental progress our country is making.
“The United States has a tremendous environmental record. By virtually every measure, our country is succeeding in lowering emissions, improving our water quality, and preserving wildlife and habitat for generations to come,” said David Holt, President of Consumer Energy Alliance. “As the world leader in oil and natural gas production, our environmental record compared to other producers is second to none.”
“We continue to see improvements in production and reductions in emissions at the same time, proving that responsible energy development and environmental stewardship can – and are – leading the way towards addressing the greatest environmental challenges of our time. While there is always more to be done, the U.S. is making great progress, and this is a success story that we as Americans should be proud of.”
