Drew Caputo, Vice President of Litigation for Lands, Oceans, and Wildlife, discusses how Earthjustice and the environmental community at large is responding to the anti-environmental threats of the incoming Trump administration.
Lisa Evans, Senior Administrative Counsel, Earthjustice: “Coal ash is a toxic substance that if handled incorrectly can take human lives, can make people sick, can ruin the environment, lakes, rivers, streams, permanently.”
Trip Van Noppen, President, Earthjustice: “His ties to the fossil fuel industry are so pervasive. That is certainly different than what Trump campaigned on with his ‘drain the swamp’ slogan.”
Earthjustice is the premier nonprofit environmental law organization. We wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health, to preserve magnificent places and wildlife, to advance clean energy, and to combat climate change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer.
