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.
The Latest On: Trump Administration
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.”
Drew Caputo, Vice President of Litigation for Lands, Oceans, and Wildlife: "He has cast dozens of environmental votes, and the overwhelming majority of them are bad for the environment ... But there are pieces of his record that give hope for the environment."
Martin Hayden, Vice President of Policy & Legislation: “His actions have all been about stopping action on climate change. His actions will be about undoing action in climate change.”
Marty Hayden, Vice President of Legislation & Policy, Earthjustice: “To undo something, you have to go through the same process it takes to write a rule — you don’t just get rid of them with the swipe of a pen. If they don’t follow the law on that, then we’ll see them in court at the end of the day when they finalize something.”
