Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement recognizing the importance of Earth Day:
“On this Earth Day, we recognize the importance of our planet, and the necessity of our efforts to save it. Whether it’s supporting efforts to curb runaway emissions, or working with California Legislators to stop and repair environmental disasters, we are pushing for laws and regulations that will make sure our Earth remains healthy enough for our children and grandchildren.
While we in the Democratic Party make efforts to save our Earth and its environment and recognize our impact on it, members of the Republican Party continue to deny basic scientific fact, including the negative impacts of fracking and climate change. As we attempt to prevent corporations from destroying the planet, Republicans are trying to make it easier for them to destroy it. We Democrats will continue to fight on behalf of the world around us, with an eye to ensuring that it is still here for posterity.”
