Were you on our National Pump Up Call with EPA Administrator and Power Shift 2011 keynote speaker Lisa Jackson Wednesday night? She joined youth leaders around the country, talking about the future of the EPA, clean energy in the US, and the role young people must play in the movement.
Lisa Jackson is no stranger to the climate fight. She has worked for the EPA for 16 years, and previously worked at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. She has been in the political hotseat for weeks, tenaciously defending the agency’s ability to regulate emissions and ensure accountability for those who threaten our clean air and water. Her work, like our work, is based on the facts, which she called “our strongest ally.” We have the truth on our side, and it will help us shift the debate.
