WASHINGTON (September 22, 2016) – In Pittsburgh today Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is scheduled to highlight his energy agenda, which would rely on dramatic expansion of fossil fuel development at the expense of clean energy.
The following is a statement from Rhea Suh, president of the NRDC Action Fund:
“Donald Trump’s dirty energy agenda will surprise no one. It’s a wish list for big polluters, and he’s their dream candidate. He would ignore climate change, and allow damage to our air, land and water. That would take us back a generation. And it would be a nightmare for our communities and climate.”
