Geoffrey Nolan, Earthjustice, (202) 740-7030

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced he would not support a new reconciliation package that includes investments in climate and environmental justice. In response, Earthjustice President Abigail Dillen issued the following statement:

“Today’s news makes it clear that Senator Manchin is determined to stand on the wrong side of history. We’re in a climate emergency with no time to spare, and this announcement is a tragic setback for desperately needed congressional action. In the absence of legislation, the president must put the full powers of the federal government to work and keep his promise to catalyze climate solutions, reform federal fossil fuels policy, and aggressively rein in fossil pollution. It’s past time to deliver climate justice at home, and climate leadership globally.”
