A Rallying Cry for Clean Water
by Chris Kilian

We are faced with a federal administration that wants not only to halt decades of hard-fought progress on clean water but reverse them altogether. But today, the impacts on our public health from blue-green algae outbreaks and chemical pollution are as serious and urgent as ever. We cannot and will not stop fighting for clean water as a fundamental right for all Americans.

CLF Pledges to Fight Clean Power Plan Repeal

“This is another shot across the bow in the Trump Administration’s crusade to unravel President Obama’s environmental legacy, and once again, our economy and our communities are the ultimate casualties,” said Greg Cunningham, Director of CLF’s Clean Energy and Climate Change program. “For an administration where ‘clean’ is a dirty word, repealing this critical plan is as unsurprising as it is outrageous. Once again, this president is on the wrong side of history.”

Going forward, it is critical that we implement stronger monitoring and enforcement at sea in order to ensure New England’s fishing industry operates on a level playing field.”
