Our Health and Environment Can't Afford Trump's Affordable Energy Plan
Statement of Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch
WASHINGTON - "The EPA’s new Affordable Clean Energy Plan comes with a steep cost to our public health and environment that this country can ill afford. In light of this complete abdication of duty from the federal government, it is now critical that state leaders step up immediately with aggressive, actionable plans to move America rapidly to a complete clean energy future. The latest science shows that to avoid the worst effects of deepening climate chaos we need to achieve 100 percent clean, renewable energy by 2035. This means state leaders must act immediately to begin shutting down fossil fuel power and ramping up clean energy production now.”
