Washington, D.C. – In response to reports that President Trump picked a coal lobbyist and others with strong dirty energy ties for top posts at the EPA, Tiernan Sittenfeld, League of Conservation Voters’ Senior Vice President for Government Affairs, released the following statement:

“With these nominations, President Trump is once again catering to his polluter allies and prioritizing their profits over our kids’ health. While the rest of the world is embracing clean energy innovation, Trump stands alone as the most anti-environmental president we’ve ever had. He’s already put in place the most anti-environment cabinet ever, and it’s now all too apparent that he’s doubling down on his dirty and dangerous agenda with this next round of nominations.”
