EARTHJUSTICE STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP

EarthJustice News Release

The following is a statement from Earthjustice President Trip Van Noppen:

“We are gravely concerned about the statements of President-elect Trump on environmental issues, which demonstrate that he might be the most anti-environment president in history. He has claimed that he will bring about an energy revolution, but his statements and policies demonstrate that he will most likely encourage greater dependence of our country on dirty fossil fuels and accelerate global warming in the face of unprecedented international agreement to tackle climate change. He has publicly stated that he does not believe in the overwhelming amount of evidence supporting climate change and his record on all matters involving justice, equity and human rights is troubling.

“Therefore, Earthjustice will be working overtime in the courts to hold President-elect Trump and his administration accountable under our nation’s laws, which protect Americans’ right to a clean and healthy environment.”
