November 23, 2020 (BOSTON, MA) – President-elect Biden announced today that former Massachusetts Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry will lead efforts to confront the climate crisis in the new administration. Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement in response.

“Secretary John Kerry’s appointment ends four years of climate denial at the highest levels of government, offering hope that the Biden Administration will confront the climate crisis with the urgency it demands,” said Bradley Campbell, President of Conservation Law Foundation. “This global threat will affect every aspect of our lives: our homes, our economy, our security, and our health. Mr. Kerry will need to hit the ground sprinting for the U.S. to re-establish itself as a climate leader.”

CLF experts are available for further comment.
