NRDC Action Fund responds to Bush energy plan rollout

The NRDC Action Fund today released the following statement from David Goldston, director of government affairs, in response to the energy plan outlined by presidential candidate Jeb Bush:

“Jeb Bush gets energy policy entirely wrong, and this proposal should end any portrayals of him as a ‘moderate’ or ‘thoughtful’ candidate.  His plan barely mentions any future-oriented, environmentally friendly energy sources like wind and solar, and he mentions climate change only to throw poorly aimed brickbats at the President’s plan to limit carbon pollution – the only plan on the books to address the problem.”


The NRDC Action Fund’s mission is to build political support in the United States for protecting the planet and its people. We mobilize influential constituencies, experts, community leaders and others to directly advocate for clean air and water, public health, biodiversity, and a stable climate. We support candidates who stand up for environmental protection, and we expose those who side with polluters rather than the public good.
