LCVAF Statement on Trump’s Promise to Big Polluters

Jun 14, 2024

Washington, D.C.— In response to yesterday’s promise from Donald Trump to drill in America’s Arctic, the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund (LCVAF) issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“Former president Trump’s renewed promise to Big Polluters to drill, drill, drill in one of the most iconic natural treasures on the planet was appalling, but not surprising. His actions as the most anti-environmental president continue to be disastrous for our communities, clean air and water, our public lands, and future generations. His own words make crystal clear yet again that another Trump presidency would be beyond catastrophic.  

In stark contrast, President Biden has done more to protect public lands than any president ever, and just this spring finalized protections for a record 13 million acres in the Arctic, totaling over 41 million acres protected during his administration. We’re all-in to support President Biden for another term so he can continue his historic efforts to safeguard our communities, clean air, water, and public lands and build a just and equitable clean energy future for all.”
