Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on President Trump’s Executive Order to undo the Clean Power Plan:

“The decision by President Trump to dismantle the Clean Power Plan is disappointing but not surprising. It’s a move that not only undermines our ability to fight climate change but also puts the United States at an economic disadvantage as we cede the technologies of the future to other nations. This executive order will endanger the Paris Climate Agreement which was instrumental in getting some of the world’s largest polluters to take important steps to reduce their carbon emissions. New Hampshire has been a leader in addressing greenhouse gas emissions through our participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. It’s long past time the rest of the nation followed the lead of New England. If we fail to act on climate change we’re only kicking the can down the road. We should be acting now to end climate change, not leaving future generations to clean up our mess.”
