FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“On behalf of Clean Water Action and our 1.2 million members across the country, I express our strong disappointment and deep concern at the selection of Governor Sarah Palin by Senator John McCain to join the Republican presidential ticket.
“If elected, Sarah Palin would follow the Republican platform playbook, promoting a risky agenda of drilling in wilderness and sensitive off-shore areas, no matter the consequences. She is also on record as supporting efforts to deny the effects of global warming, despite overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary.
“Clean Water Action believes this Republican presidential ticket has now turned its back on millions of Americans across this country who care deeply about the quality of their water and the air they breathe, the neglect of our environment and the long-term health consequences for our families and children.
“The American voter must judge John McCain and Sarah Palin on deeds as well as words. Their record on environmental and conservation issues utterly fails in earning our support. Our children simply cannot afford four more years of the same failed policies and continued support for Big Oil.”
