Trump's Energy Plan is a Dumpster Fire

Sierra Club Slams Trump’s Disastrous, Irresponsible Energy Plans
Thursday, September 15, 2016
New York, NY - Today, Donald Trump detailed economic and energy plans today which double down on his total denial of the scientific consensus on climate change and the global movement toward clean, renewable energy. Trump said he would end the life-saving Clean Power Plan, open up our coasts to drilling, promote the dirtiest fuels, and gut safeguards and protections for clean air and clean water.

In Response, Sierra Club Political Director Khalid Pitts Released the Following Statement:

“Donald Trump is the worst candidate for our climate and our environment in history. The only thing associated with his campaign that remotely resembles ‘alternative energy’ are the flames from the dumpster fire that is his energy policy -- and those are obviously unhealthy to be around. Put simply, Trump’s energy plan is this: he opposes any policy that will tackle the climate crisis or grow our clean energy economy, and he supports any policy that props up the dirty fossil fuel industry. Anyone with illusions that he cares about the health of American families just needs to note that a day after he was in Flint for a photo-op, he directly attacked clean water safeguards. American families deserve better than a con-man who cribs his speeches from fossil fuel CEOs.”
