CLF Pledges to Fight Clean Power Plan Repeal


Says decision is disastrous for environment, economy

October 6, 2017 (BOSTON, MA) – Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement today in response to reports that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) intends to repeal the Clean Power Plan.

“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.”

More information about CLF’s efforts to defend the Clean Power Plan in court is available here. This work is part of CLF’s “New England for Paris” campaign.

CLF experts are available for further comment.
