NRDC Will Sue as Trump Threatens Dismantling of Methane Pollution Protections (Opinions, Editorials & Asides)
Natural Resources Defense Council
Date: 2017-06-02
In Washington, the international not-for-profit Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) reports it will go to court to block the Trump administration from withdrawing from the Paris Agreement and rolling back protections against dangerous methane pollution from the oil and gas industry.

NRDC Climate and Clean Air Program Director David Doniger issued the following statement: "On the heels of news reports that the U.S. will walk away from a global commitment to combat climate change, President Trump is sabotaging headway the U.S. has already made. The Trump administration is giving its friends in the oil and gas industry a free pass to continue polluting our air. EPA is continuing to put thousands of people in communities near these facilities at increased risk for asthma attacks and cancer. We will fight Trump's latest polluter giveaway in court."
