Schatz Slams Trump Proposal To Roll Back Clean Power Plan

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement slamming President Trump’s proposal to roll back the Clean Power Plan.

“President Trump’s proposal is full-fledged climate denial. It gives coal companies the green light to pollute the air we breathe and the water we drink. This proposal flies in the face of scientific fact, morality, and America’s leadership,”
said Senator Schatz. “The good news is that the clean energy revolution cannot be stopped. And while this administration continues to ignore the reality of climate change, clean energy is growing in states and countries around the world.”
