Living under the new Donald Trump administration means protecting the environment is now one of our country’s biggest challenges — from fighting efforts to destroy the clean energy industry, to protecting clean air and drinking water for millions of Americans and keeping our public lands out of the hands of Big Polluters.
Combating the Trump-Ryan-McConnell agenda won’t be easy. That’s why I’m so relieved that the League of Conservation Voters is on the front lines against their anti-environment attacks. But they can’t do it alone.
On the campaign trail Trump constantly talked about rolling back the gains we’ve made in the fight against climate change. Let’s make sure Trump hears from Us. We will not accept an agenda that sacrifices the planet for profits.
We though the new Trump administration was going to be bad…but not this bad.
Days after taking power, Donald Trump cancelled a federal conference on the health impacts of climate change, put a freeze on EPA funding and federal hiring, and signed executive orders advancing the dangerous Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines.
This is in addition to his pro-polluter team of cabinet nominees and promises to eliminate the Clean Power Plan and back out of the Paris Climate Agreement. He’s only just getting started and we’re already seeing the effects of his radical anti-environment agenda!
Now more than ever, we need stand strong together like we did at last month’s Women’s March and fight back against Trump’s nightmarish plans. LCV is putting all its resources to build a network of engaged citizens that will push back against Trump’s radical agenda. Will you join us?
STAND TOGETHER: We won’t let Trump and Big Polluter insiders to get away with their awful plans for the environment »
Trump has already fulfilled his promise to greenlight the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines, and we can only expect him to move forward on his promise to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement and gut our most vital environmental protections.
His cabinet is not any better former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson is our nation’s newest Secretary of State and climate skeptic Scott Pruitt might be confirmed as soon as next week! Trump and his administration are a menace to everything we’ve worked for.
People who care about breathing clean air and drinking clean water, who are worried about the dangers of climate change, and who want to save our planet must rally together and fight back harder than ever!
Climate change is no “hoax:” Don’t let Trump kill climate progress »
Let’s build a people-powered movement to protect our environment from Trump’s disastrous plans! Thank you for standing up to Donald Trump’s dangerous, anti-environment agenda.
