Eshoo Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order Eliminating the Clean Power Plan

March 28th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after President Trump signed a new executive order eliminating the Clean Power Plan.

“Today’s Executive Order eliminating President Obama’s Clean Power Plan and other climate initiatives is a monumental attack on the health of the American people. The President’s Order contradicts the majority of Americans who believe we must be proactive about climate change. This will do little to help the coal miners that the President has promised to defend. As the CEO of Murray Energy said this week, the President’s Order will not bring coal mining jobs back to the U.S. given broader market forces.  Climate change is a crisis of existential proportions, and recent trends of severe weather, drought, sea level rise, and natural disasters paint a dark future if we fail to act.

“We have the science, the knowhow, and the capacity to change course, yet we have an Administration that refuses to accept scientific facts. It’s noble and necessary to protect our earth and the health of our children, and we must continue to fight against actions that undermine our progress.”
