Gov. Evers, Lt. Gov. Barnes Release Joint Statement Commemorating Earth Day
"Earth Day is a time to be thankful for our planet and the natural resources it provides us."
“Our state has a rich history of defending and preserving Wisconsin’s water, air, and natural heritage—from our Indigenous communities to people like John Muir and Governor Gaylord Nelson. Today, we celebrate Earth Day because of Governor Nelson’s vision to protect our planet’s most valuable resources.
“Our administration is working vigorously to make Wisconsin a leader, once again, in defending our air, water, health, and communities. We’re embracing science, investing in research, and identifying ways to encourage our state’s businesses and communities to make smart energy choices. For far too long, leaders have ignored the devastating impact climate change is having on our state—but those days are over. We’re taking bold action against climate change and investing in renewable energy.
“The Earth does not belong to one political party or another. Climate change and the impact it is having on our communities is something we need to address together. The future of our state and our planet depends on it.”
