Washington, D.C. - Speaker Nancy Pelosi will lead a Congressional Delegation to Copenhagen, Denmark for the UN Climate Conference.

"The House of Representatives has taken historic action to address the climate crisis and transition our country to a clean energy economy," Speaker Pelosi said. "We see Copenhagen as a meeting about job creation - how do we move forward to create millions of clean energy jobs and new technologies to keep America number one. We are going to send a message of support for the Obama Administration's efforts and we bring with us the strong commitment of the Congress to take action, as the House of Representatives did in June."

The delegation will meet with representatives from key countries involved in the negotiations and also with advocacy and business leaders to discuss job creation.
