Auditor General DePasquale Urges National Strategy On Climate Change

On November 21, Auditor General Eugene DePasquale issued the following statement calling for a national strategy on climate change after smoke from California’s wildfires overspread the nation.
“When smoke and haze from California begin to impact air quality in Pennsylvania and nationwide, it should set off an alarm for policymakers at the federal level. No reasonable person can pretend that climate change is not having a serious impact on our environment.
“The fact that some people in Washington treat the existence of climate change as a partisan issue is really beyond comprehension. The obvious impacts are all around us and will only continue to get worse unless we take strategic action on climate change, and do it now.
“When people trying to protect the status quo blame wildfires on unraked forests or make similarly outlandish excuses for inaction, it’s obvious they’re not taking the problem seriously. Instead of trying to create a distraction, our national leaders owe us some actual leadership on climate change.”
