Nation's Largest Online Latino Group Praises Obama on US China Climate Agreement

Nov. 12, 2014

On the heels of last night's announcement of a US China climate agreement forged by President Obama, Presente.org Executive Director Arturo Carmona released the following statement:

“This is a big win for the climate, and for Latinos across the country on the front lines of climate change and in the line of fire from toxic fossil fuel pollution. It’s clear with this new deal between the US and China that President Obama must reject Keystone XL as soon as possible to meet agreed upon targets, and we hope that this signals a new era in which the health and safety of Latino families are not thrown to the wind for the benefit of Big Oil and Gas profits.”
