MADISON, WI—U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) today issued the following statement in celebration of Earth Day, which was founded by former U.S. Senator from Wisconsin Gaylord Nelson:

“As we celebrate Earth Day today, we must carry on the legacy of Senator Gaylord Nelson and renew our efforts to preserve the beautiful natural resources so abundant in Wisconsin. Earth Day serves as a yearly reminder to recommit ourselves to environmental protection and stewardship. Now, more than ever, we must do all we can to explore greener technologies to generate jobs and energy, and work diligently to curb the effects of greenhouse gases and global climate change. Above all, Earth Day reminds us that we have a shared responsibility to leave this world cleaner than how we found it.”
