Safe Climate Caucus Statement Honoring Earth Day
Congressional Safe Climate Caucus co-chairs Reps. Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) and Don Beyer (VA-08) issued the following statement to honor the 48th anniversary of Earth Day:
“This Earth Day finds the United States’ commitment to environmental leadership under attack by the Trump Administration, and our efforts to provide clean air and water to our citizens and a livable planet to future generations under threat.
“The people of this country deserve committed public servants who will fight for them, against climate change and other threats to public health. We urge President Trump to mark Earth Day by firing Scott Pruitt and replacing him with someone who will return the Environmental Protection Agency to its core mission, rather than using their position for perks and schemes at Americans’ expense.”
