Steve Reilly (D)

Reilly addresses climate change in his environmental policy:

Environmental Policy
The United States must reclaim its leadership on global environmental issues. The Trump Administration was wrong to withdraw our country from the Paris Climate Accord. Global warming is not a “hoax,” but a scientifically recognized threat to the long term survival of our world as we know it.

President Trump’s appointee as Environmental Protection Agency chief, Scott Pruitt, has embarked on an aggressive and dangerous effort to undo Obama-era environmental rules and regulations. President Trump and Mr. Pruitt seek to undo or significantly weaken climate change rules known as the “Clean Power Plan” and to roll back water pollution and methane pollution rules enacted by the Obama Administration. Pruitt and President Trump champion the idea of invigorating and returning to coal as a primary source of energy, including the idea of making it easier to export American coal worldwide. Even Obama-era automobile fuel efficiency standards are under threat.

If elected, I will fight President Trump’s efforts to take us backwards on environmental protections.
