EPA Report Issued
July 1, 2010

Recently the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a report on “Climate Change Indicators” reviewing 24 critical indicators of the planet’s environmental health for visible impacts of climate change. For the vast majority of the indicators, 22 of 24, the report’s authors conclude that climate change has already had scientifi- cally verified effects on our air, oceans, weather and wildlife.

The report comes at a critical time for national leaders, where a bipartisan Senate climate and energy bill is anticipated to be considered by the U.S. Senate for action this year.

Larry Schweiger, president and CEO of National Wildlife Federation said:
“Nature isn’t Republican or Democratic and this report shows nature is sounding an alarm. Wildlife, natural systems and our climate in America have changed and will continue to change at an alarming pace. The EPA’s report is a wake-up call on the need to reduce carbon pollution from tailpipes and smokestacks to safeguard the future for our children and grandchildren.

“Every day our lawmakers fail to enact clean energy and climate legislation, we put our economy, our national security and our environment at greater risk. The EPA’s findings underscore the need for the Senate to stay focused and finish the job of crafting and passing a bipartisan climate and energy bill.”

The National Wildlife Federation is America’s largest conservation organization inspiring Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future.
