350.org on Trump’s “Climate-Wrecking Infrastructure Plan”

WASHINGTON -

Today the Trump administration unveiled an infrastructure proposal that would open the floodgates to climate-wrecking fossil fuel projects -- like pipelines -- and gut bedrock environmental protections. 350.org Executive Director May Boeve gave the following response:

“This is a climate-wrecking fossil fuel infrastructure plan that fast-tracks pipelines at the expense of frontline communities and working people. This flies in the face of everything we know about climate science. While the Trump administration puts the corporate bottom line ahead of our communities and our climate, we are standing up to pipelines and all fossil fuel projects around the world, and getting to work to build the fossil free climate-resilient infrastructure we need.”

350 is building a future that's just, prosperous, equitable and safe from the effects of the climate crisis. We're an international movement of ordinary people working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.
