Perlmutter Responds to Trump’s Climate Change Executive Order
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) today released the following statement in response to President Trump’s Executive Order that attempts to reverse multiple major U.S. initiatives to combat climate change.
“President Trump’s decision to roll back the progress we’ve made combating climate change is short-sided and a bad move for our economy. The Clean Power Plan and the many other protections put in place over the last eight years are good for our national security, good for the climate, and good for jobs. I believe we can do both – improve our energy independence and create good paying jobs. Colorado has been a leader in energy efficiency and clean energy and we have realized substantial economic benefits for Colorado through innovation, research and development, and the creation of jobs.”
