Columbus, Ohio -- The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Heather Taylor-Miesle, President of the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund:
“Last night, Senator Sherrod Brown displayed the qualities of a true leader and someone who will act on climate change. In response to concerns about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, Brown backed up the science and made it clear that we can’t afford to waste any more time. We must transition away from fossil fuels and invest in renewable energy to ensure a healthy future for our planet.
The OEC Action Fund is proud to endorse a candidate who stands up for common sense environmental policies that protect Ohioans and our air, water, and land. Brown has been an avid environmental champion and deserves Ohio’s vote.”
