Action: Climate Change

January 9, 2017   Action Alert ID# 465

 

On January 20, President-elect Trump will enter office flanked by congressional leaders who have made attacking climate action and dismantling health safeguards their top priorities.

Climate change affects every facet of American life, from basic public health to extreme weather events to national security threats. Despite the fact that a majority of Americans, and even a majority of Republicans, support action on climate change, President-elect Donald Trump refuses to accept the facts and take climate change seriously, putting the health and safety of our families at risk.

Trump and his team have said they will “scrap” the Clean Power Plan, “cancel the Paris Climate Agreement“ and gut the Clean Air Act—a bedrock law that protects our environment, climate and public health against industrial pollution, and has been saving lives for 40 years. An overwhelming majority of Americans support these protections because they know that climate change poses an urgent threat to our environment, health and way of life. This election did not change that basic fact. Nobody voted to end clean air.

Earthjustice has been fighting for years—through administrations both friendly and hostile—to protect our communities and the health of our environment, and we won’t stop now. Over the last eight years, we’ve made remarkable progress in the fight against climate change, with the Clean Power Plan, stronger standards to reduce dangerous pollutants like methane, and the Paris Agreement on climate change. Rolling back these vital protections is unacceptable and dangerous.

With anti-environment extremists controlling the House, Senate and White House, fighting for climate action will be an uphill battle. President-elect Trump has made it clear that he will put the interests of big polluters and dirty energy insiders above those of the American people. But with your help, we can both hold the line against rollbacks and continue to make progress toward clean energy.

The planet can’t afford four years of climate change denial and rollbacks of climate progress. Tell Trump and Congress that you will fight to protect climate progress.
