Statement on White House announcement that Pres. Obama to participate in Lake Tahoe Summit

by League to Save Lake Tahoe
Aug 8, 2016:
“The announcement that President Obama will participate in the Lake Tahoe Summit comes at a critical time for the health of Lake Tahoe. In the recent State of the Lake report scientists project that Lake Tahoe is locked into decades of warming due to climate change, even in a scenario where climate emissions are greatly reduced, making it more important than ever to take actions that can improve Lake Tahoe’s resiliency to increasing water temperatures and more precipitation falling as rain rather than snow.The League to Save Lake Tahoe is optimistic that with the national spotlight that President Obama brings to Tahoe, we have a historic opportunity to Keep Tahoe Blue by making progress on our efforts to combat pollution, promote restoration, tackle invasive species and protect Lake Tahoe’s shoreline.”– Statement by Darcie Goodman Collins, PhD
