Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 05, 2013 -- Statement by: Tom Kiernan, President, National Parks Conservation Association

“Yesterday’s nomination of Gina McCarthy to serve as the next administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by President Obama is a strong step forward in improving and protecting the health and vitality of our national parks and the people who visit and live near them. In her tenure at the EPA, Gina has proven to be a pragmatic leader in fulfilling the demands of landmark legislation like the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act, both of which are integral to the long term health of our national parks. We expect her to continue the visionary work that has helped in the environmental restoration of the Chesapeake Bay and the Great Lakes and to keep our other park waters clean and protected through strong EPA guidance and the best science available. We know she also understands that clean, clear air is vital not only for human health but for the well-being of our treasured national parks, forests, and wildlife refuges, which millions of Americans visit each year. We look forward to working with her in making sure our national parks remain protected for future generations.”
