“Sen. Obama has publicly committed to fully addressing the pressing problem of global warming and moving the United States toward a new energy future,” said Margie Alt, executive director of Environment America. “He has made clean energy one of the top issues of his campaign, and as a public servant representing Illinois at the state and federal levels has a long and consistent record of supporting the environment.”

Environment America also rolled out a video of members praising Obama and his environmental plan.
