Moulton Statement on Trump’s Executive Order on the Environment

March 29th, 2017

Moulton: “President Trump’s latest executive order shows a complete disregard for facts and science.” 

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s executive order to rollback EPA policies and significantly alter the country’s climate change and environmental policies.

“President Trump’s latest executive order shows a complete disregard for facts and science. Climate change is real, and it jeopardizes our homes, our cities, and our national security. In Massachusetts, we see the destructive impact of climate change firsthand, from coastline erosion threatening homes and communities, to last summer’s drought that damaged our local economy.

“Ignoring this reality, Trump’s executive order will irresponsibly roll back the progress we made under President Obama to protect our environment for generations to come. And Trump’s order does nothing to create 21st century jobs or make us competitive in the global economy.

“Environmental protection and economic growth go hand in hand with smart, effective policies. But Trump’s disastrous plan is not only harmful to our environment, but to our economy and our national security as well.

“I’m committed to fighting this and working to create forward-looking policies that will make us more resilient against extreme weather and help to reduce our contribution to climate change.”
