v>As 2012 election results are tallied across the nation, National Audubon Society President and CEO David Yarnold issued the following statement:

"The October surprise was a wake-up call on climate change. Period. Americans are yet again ahead of their leaders: They're worried and they want someone to trust," said National Audubon Society President and CEO David Yarnold. "One thing we learned this election season is that conservation is a deeply held value for Americans of all political parties. Americans don't want conservation held hostage to partisan politics, and we look forward to working with the White House and Congress to make real progress on climate, energy, and conservation solutions."
