Governor’s Weekly Message: Addressing the Effects of Climate Change

DOVER – In his weekly message, Governor Markell discusses local and national efforts to combat effects of climate change and highlights a recent visit by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy.

“We’re using cleaner power sources; reducing energy bills through efficiency; and creating opportunities for research, manufacturing, and construction jobs to support a cleaner energy economy,” said Governor Markell. “We must continue to build on the progress we’ve made, and we’re committed to helping meet EPA’s ambitious goals. By recognizing the environmental, health and economic benefits of using the right approach to combat climate change, we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”
