Congressman Tim Ryan Condemns Trump Administration’s Rollback of the Clean Power Plan

August 21, 2018
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) made the following state regarding the Trump Administration’s plan to roll back the Clean Power Plan:

“The Clean Power Plan was an important step for our nation to combat climate change. It would have cut carbon emissions by one-third by 2030 and prevented over 3,000 environment-related premature deaths each year. This decision by the Trump Administration is a huge setback for our environment and puts the health of every America in danger. It is yet another example of this President’s refusal to acknowledge climate change and take the necessary steps to address it,” said Congressman Ryan. “We should be protecting our future generations, not polluting them. By pulling out of the Paris Climate Deal, weakening fuel economy standards, and now rolling back the Clean Power Plan, this Administration is abandoning our commitment to protecting the environment and diminishing our global standing in the world. Today’s decision continues a long line of misguided actions by President Trump that are toxic to our planet and to the American people.”
