It’s clear that President Trump won’t be acting on climate or clean water – in fact everything he’s done has taken us backward. But here in Pennsylvania, we can make a difference.
Summer should be a time to have fun, to meet new people, and to get out of our comfort zones, which is why I’ve got no problem saying that of all the summer job opportunities, working with us at Clean Water Action is one of the best.
President Trump’s continued rollback of federal safeguards means we must look more toward local leaders to provide needed protections for our health and environment. That’s why it’s so important that you vote in the May 16th primary and elect candidates who embrace this responsibility. Clean Water Action has endorsed in the Democratic Primary: Bill Peduto for Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh; Ashleigh Deemer for Pittsburgh City Council, District 4; and Dan Gilman, Pittsburgh City Council, District 8.
Climate change is a hoax. We’re going to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. We’re going to eliminate the Waters of the U.S. rule. We’re going to roll back most of the Obama administration’s environmental policies, including the Clean Power Plan.
These are not only president-elect Trump’s words but his vision for the environmental world he intends to create and they could have a profound impact on Pennsylvania’s water, air, and health.
