Washington, D.C. – In response to President Trump’s speech on the so-called “environmental leadership” of his administration, Former EPA Administrator and League of Conservation Voters Board Chair Carol M. Browner released the following statement:

“Without the President’s acknowledgement of climate change as a threat to our economy, our environment and our health, his record on the environment can only be described as a total failure. Under this president we’ve seen more than 80 roll backs of public health and environmental protections on everything from the Clean Power Plan to pesticides. Enforcement of environmental laws is down more than 80% under his watch. Trump’s environmental record is such a toxic disaster it should be declared a Superfund site.”
