Trump Promises Environmental Protection Through Regulation While Eliminating Environmental Regulations


In a rambling address at CPAC today, President Donald Trump said he will eliminate environmental protections to help American business, while also saying that he wants environmental protection through regulations.

In Response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:

“Cognitive dissonance, thy name is Donald Trump.”


We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?

The Sierra Club is the oldest and largest grassroots environmental organization in the United States. It was founded on May 28, 1892 in San Francisco, California by the well-known conservationist and preservationist John Muir, who became its first president. The Sierra Club has hundreds of thousands of members in chapters located throughout the US, and is affiliated with Sierra Club Canada.
