PARIS, FRANCE — Executive Director May Boeve issued the following statement on President Obama’s speech at the opening of the COP21 UN Climate Summit in Paris:

“President Obama has lifted up climate change as the great moral issue of our time. Now, he must deliver. The science is clear: we must end the use of fossil fuels and fully transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050. Here in Paris, politicians must agree on that North Star and chart a clear course to get there. The hundreds of thousands who took to the streets over the weekend for the Global Climate March expect nothing less.”

Boeve and other spokespeople are available for interviews here at COP21.
