National Parks Conservation Association Praises Introduction of the Climate Change Safeguards for Natural Resources Conservation Act

Statement by Mark Wenzler, Director, Clean Air and Climate Programs

"Already, global warming is degrading America's national parks. Chairman Nick Rahall (D-WV) and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) have introduced a bill, the Climate Change Safeguards for Natural Resources Conservation Act (H.R. 2192), which offers effective tools to fight back. Safeguarding national parks like Glacier and the Great Smoky Mountains will ensure the protection of wildlife and wild places for our children and grandchildren, and provide economic and other benefits for the communities that thrive near these priceless places."
