E2: Country primed to build on clean energy's momentum

The following is a statement from Bob Keefe, executive director of the national nonpartisan business group Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2), on President Obama highlighting in his State of the Union address Tuesday night issues like climate change and clean energy's role in the U.S. economy:


"President Obama understands the economic costs of climate change - and the economic opportunities of solving it. So do American businesses. With the right policies, this is the year our country can really build on clean energy's momentum and continue to expand our economy and protect our environment."
