President Biden Optimism with League of Conservation Voters

I"t’s the young people in this country in particular who are leading the way.  And I mean that sincerely.  That is one of the reasons I’m so incredibly optimistic.  The is the best educated, most committed generation in American history, and they’re going to take us over the end and just work it out for us."

So said Joe Biden at the League of Conservation Voters Annual Capital Dinner.  The League of Conservation Voters has endorsed Joe Biden for the next presidential election.

The president concluded, "When I got elected President, with Kamala's partnership, we vowed to enact the most ambitious climate and environmental justice campaign in American history. And that's exactly what we've done with your help. (Applause.) We've made a lot of progress, but there's so much more to do: Getting to 100 percent clean electricity by 2035. Moving to all-electric vehicles in the future, made in America. Building 500,000 EV charging stations from coast to coast. Conserving 30 percent of our lands and waters by 2030. And with your help, I'm optimistic we're going to get it done, especially with the support of so many young people across this country representing your organizations. You represent the best of us. That's not hyperbole. You represent the best of us. That's the God's truth. And you are as important as any group in foreign policy dealing with national concerns, because this is, as I said — I'll end where I began — the existential threat to humanity. So, let's finish the job. Let's keep going."
