Statement on USEPA Repeal of Clean Power Plan

Climate Mayors Statement on Announcement by Trump Administration to repeal life saving Clean Power Plan

Tuesday, October 10th 2017

Today’s announcement by the EPA undermines our nation’s leadership on climate action and threatens Americans’ health and safety. The Supreme Court has already directed the agency to act on carbon pollution, and we call on President Trump to honor that mandate.

As Mayors representing cities of every size, we know firsthand that the costs of inaction are too great — our cities are on the front lines of super storms, floods, droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, and public health challenges caused by climate change. That’s why we are committed to bold action to clean our air, strengthen our economy, and ensure a healthier future for our children and grandchildren.
