(CNSNews.com)- Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy says when it comes to the issue of climate change, “President Obama, his administration, the EPA - have absolutely no plans to slow down.”

McCarthy was speaking at the “U.S. and Canada: Advancing the Climate Change Agenda" event earlier this month at the University of Ottawa.  McCarthy focused on how the U.S. is working hard with Canada and other countries on climate change.

“So along with our federal partners - the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as you probably know, has been central in leading the U.S. effort on climate issues. And make no mistake about it, we’re continuing to move forward,” McCarthy said. “Because I want to be very clear, President Obama, his administration, the EPA - have absolutely no plans to slow down.”

“This is a race for the future of our kids and the health of our planet and we our not slowing down. We are keeping up our momentum and we are going to do that all the way over the finish line, because we need to give the next president a leg up to keep that momentum moving forward,” McCarthy said.
