Statement on the Trump Administration’s Revocation of California’s Authority to Set Emissions Standards
SEP. 18, 2019
The Trump administration is wrong on the waiver, wrong on the science, wrong on the market, and wrong on the politics. Whether or not they lose in the courtroom – and we will help fight them – they will lose in the court of public opinion and the marketplace. The American people are demanding cleaner vehicles and other actions that attack the climate crisis, and through Beyond Carbon, our foundation is working with mayors, governors, and business leaders across the country to deliver them. The auto industry – management and labor – have already decided; the future is clean transportation.
U.N. Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change and President of the Board of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group.
IN MIKE'S WORDS
There are so many facets to climate change that make it difficult to address, but you don’t give up just because it’s difficult. You work harder.
