Rep. Susan Davis: Earth Day takes on new significance with Environmental Protections Being Rolled Back
SAN DIEGO – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego), a member of the Sustainable Energy & Environment Coalition, released the following statement for Earth Day 2017.
“As millions of Americans celebrate Earth Day, this day takes on new significance as the Trump Administration continues to roll back environmental safeguards put in place by President Obama.
“Over the past eight years we have made solid progress in protecting the environment and addressing climate change. However, this new administration has ended protections for clean air, clean water, and wildlife. The Trump administration is also attempting to undo President Obama’s landmark Clean Power Plan, which would significantly reduce carbon emissions.
“We have a solemn responsibility to protect the only planet we have. I will continue to resist these attacks on our environment and the health and safety of the American people.”
