DEP COMMISSIONER CATHERINE R. McCABE’S STATEMENT ON TRUMP
ADMINISTRATION “AFFORDABLE CLEAN ENERGY RULE”

(19/P049) TRENTON – “The Trump Administration’s so-called Affordable Clean Energy rule is a betrayal of America’s future generations. By encouraging more coal-fired power generation, this federal action flies in the face of the scientific evidence that burning fossil fuels is causing climate change and harming the health of our people. Instead of facing up to the urgent challenge of reducing carbon emissions, as New Jersey and many other states are doing, the Trump Administration is taking us backwards.”
