REPORT CARD: Trump Gets an F in Michigan; In November, He’ll Get an L

Washington, D.C. – Ahead of today’s Michigan primary, we’re here to remind you that Donald Trump failed Michigan families and the economy as President. His anti-worker and climate-denier agenda cost families jobs and made Michigan’s air and water dirtier, threatening the health of communities across the state. Trump rolled back clean cars standards that would have saved families money at the pump and protected wages for workers across the nation. The rollback was estimated to cost Michiganders over $745 million per year. Families in Michigan can’t afford another Trump presidency.

Climate Power Calls for False Big Oil Ads to Come Down

Washington, D.C. – In a letter to local affiliates, Climate Power today called for television stations in swing states across the country and Washington, D.C., to remove ads paid for by the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers that lie about the Biden administration and deliberately attempt to scare and mislead viewers. The eight-figure ad campaign, expected to run in Arizona, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, directs viewers to “tell [President Biden] to stop his EPA’s car ban.” However, there is no pending federal “car ban,” and the ads' claims are false and misleading.

In response to Congressman-elect Suozzi’s victory, Climate Power executive director Lori Lodes said...

REPORT CARD: Trump’s Climate Record Gets an ‘F’ in Nevada. In November, He’ll Get an ‘L’

Carson City, Nev. – Ahead of the caucuses in Nevada today, we’re here to remind you that  Donald Trump failed Nevadans as president. Trump’s environmental record hurt families and set back climate progress. As president, Trump decimated Obama-era climate policies that would have helped families save billions on health care costs and protected thousands from climate-linked medical problems.
