Brace for War - Against Trump's Impending Attacks on the Environment.
It’s clear that President Trump will be the greatest threat to the environment in living memory.
He’ll fuel climate chaos by digging up even more dirty fossil fuels. He’ll “cancel” the Paris climate agreement. And he’ll undo President Obama’s Clean Power Plan -- all while increasing giveaways to Big Oil and Big Ag. But there’s only so much Trump can do alone.
The Democrats still have the power of the filibuster. We’ll push them to use it to stop dangerous bills from making it to Trump’s desk. And we’ll turn up the heat on Congress to reject the TPP.
We’re also going to take the fight outside Washington. For the next four years, we’ll work to pass state laws to protect our planet. And we’ll push companies like Kroger and Olive Garden to help end destructive farming practices.
By supporting Friends of the Earth, you’ll make it possible to defend our Earth from attacks from the Trump Administration.
