First in the Nation Against Global Warming

May 7, 2007

New Hampshire's "first in the nation" primary gives it far more clout than just picking presidents. With Sen. John Sununu voting on a new fuel economy bill in a Senate committee tomorrow, state Sierra Club spokesman Kurt Ehrenberg says that the early primary means when New Hampshire talks, national leaders listen.

“When people in New Hampshire speak out in favor of solutions to global warming in an aggressive federal effort, our voices are heard clearly, and we can have a real impact.”

Erhenberg notes that New Hampshire voters are already calling for change.

“People of New Hampshire in many forums and in many voices have been calling out for these solutions throughout the last few months.”

On Friday, the International Panel on Climate Change reported that moves to reduce global warming would also increase energy security and create new economic opportunities. The bill being voted on tomorrow would increase fuel efficiency standards and close the loophole for pickup trucks.

Sununu is a member of the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. He has not yet said how he plans to vote.
