WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced that he will step down from his post. Green for All CEO Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins issued the following response:
“Secretary Chu has championed the advancement of clean energy technology to address our growing climate crisis. We need our next Energy Secretary to follow his example and continue to open doors to innovation and make our nation more resilient in the face of climate change.
We look forward to working with the Department of Energy to see through the commitment President Obama has made to fighting climate change, which threatens all of our families, especially low-income Americans and communities of color, who are most vulnerable to disasters and extreme weather.”
