December 10, 2016 (BOSTON, MA) – Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement today in response to President-elect Trump’s announcement that he is considering ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson for U.S. Secretary of State.

“President-elect Trump’s reported intention to nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State is his latest and most egregious step in turning the federal government, and the stewardship of the global environment, over to a cabal of corporate extremists with proven disdain for science, stewardship, public service, and the common good,” said CLF President Brad Campbell. “Every American should tremble for our country.”

CLF experts are available for further comment.
