Thursday, February 28, 2019 | Kevin Baird (202-225-3861)

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after being named to the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis:

“I am honored to serve on this select committee, and I appreciate Minority Leader McCarthy appointing me to this post.

“I will use my position to guide this committee toward following the facts and scientific evidence, not ideology and speculation. The climate is changing. Any plan of action must reflect the reality that most countries in the world will continue to use fossil fuels. Our goal as a worldwide leader and energy exporter should be to develop cleaner, more efficient ways to utilize the wealth of energy resources our country possesses.”
