Congressman Lowenthal Addresses Trump Executive Order Attacking Environmental Protections

Washington, D.C., March 28, 2017 | comments

Congressman Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) today issued the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s signing of an executive order dismantling many environmental protections put into place during the Obama Administration:

“We all want our world to be a safe, healthy place to raise our families and grow our economy.  But, changing weather patterns, more frequent droughts, worsening air quality, and sea level rise cost us money and threaten the well-being of our families and our neighbors.  The longer we wait to mitigate these impacts the more expensive it will be to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and the less chance we have of keeping the world’s warming below a safe threshold. 

“America has the opportunity to lead the world in making our environment safe and healthy now and into the future. Instead, the President’s action today slows down the progress we’ve been making and puts U.S. leadership on climate in question.

“This executive order only kicks the climate change can further down the road, forcing future generations to suffer and deal with it. With a stroke of his pen, President Trump has pushed the collective head of the U.S. government further in the sand on climate change.

“As a Californian, I am offended. As a Congressman, I am ready to continue fighting for our future.”
