Climate Accomplishments Starkly Contrast with Trump’s ‘Drill, Drill, Drill’ Agenda

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Since President Biden’s inauguration, his administration has accomplished more on climate than any other president in American history. As President Biden faces a likely rematch against climate denier Donald Trump, all of the climate progress made in the last three years hangs in the balance. Trump has made it clear he would reverse Biden’s signature climate legislation and give Big Oil free rein to “drill baby, drill” on day one, the contrast is so stark that POLITICO suggested a return to a Trump presidency would be the equivalent of “ an all-out war” on climate. 

“President Biden is a tried and true climate champion — he’s passed the largest climate bill in history that’s helped to create over 210,000 jobs and is putting us on a path to lower harmful climate pollution,” said Lori Lodes, executive director of Climate Power. “Donald Trump was the worst president on climate change and promises to continue supporting Big Oil. His pro-polluter economic agenda will cost Americans their jobs, and pad the pockets of Big Oil CEOs. Our climate progress is at stake in 2024.”
