Democrats Celebrate Earth Day
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following statement in celebration of Earth Day this Sunday:

“This weekend, people around the world will celebrate Earth Day through acts of service, stewardship of the environment and by raising awareness of important issues such as climate change. I am especially proud that Democrats have taken the lead on conservationism and energy efficiency. Unfortunately the Bush Administration has continued to play politics with our environmental policy by working to discredit accepted science on global warming and by rolling back environmental regulations.

“Democrats believe we should be strengthening and improving our environment, not rolling back and gutting our clean air and water standards. Democrats also believe that we all have a moral obligation to be good stewards of our planet. Cleaning up and caring for our environment is one of the greatest challenges of our time and we must work together across party lines to ensure that we leave a better world to future generations.”
