Lisa Jackson Takes on Stephen Colbert

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson talked to Stephen Colbert last night - and did a great job with such a hilarious host.

"Of course we want jobs, but we also want to do it to ensure that our kids are going to be healthy," she said after one hilarious Colbert question. Take a look.

To go along with this great Lisa Jackson clip, yesterday the Sierra Student Coalition and 350.org launched the "Stand With Lisa" campaign.

While you won't see EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson on the big screen this summer wearing a cape over spandex, the "Stand with Lisa" campaign is supporting Jackson's heroic efforts to fight for public health in the face of polluting villains. Web ads will run through October to raise awareness about Lisa Jackson's heroic efforts resulting in victories like a massive increase in the fuel efficiency standards for cars by 2020 and protecting the American people from dangerous toxic mercury pollution.

The ad and website launch will be followed up by a college campus tour in the fall; further details and dates to be announced.
