WASHINGTON (September 14, 2020) – President Trump and former Vice President Biden today each delivered comments about the wildfires in the western U.S.
Gina McCarthy, president and CEO of the NRDC Action Fund, issued the following statement:
“With dozens dead, hundreds of thousands fleeing their homes, and millions struggling to breathe indoors—President Trump continues to deny that climate change is fanning the flames while doing everything in his power to fuel it.
“But as we’ve also seen with the pandemic, his lies are hurting Americans. Joe Biden has a bold and workable plan to fight the climate crisis while creating jobs and making our communities safer and healthier. In 50 days, American voters get to choose a new leader and a new future, and the choice couldn’t be clearer.”
