Trump rolled back more than 125 environmental safeguards. Here’s how.

The Trump admin rolled back more than 100 safeguards threatening our health and environment. Joe Biden's appointees will need to “roll back the rollbacks” to fight climate change. Now is the time to act to confirm Biden's climate nominees.

President Trump has weakened or wiped out more than 125 rules and policies aimed at protecting the nation’s air, water and land since taking office, with nearly 40 more rollbacks underway, according to a Washington Post analysis.

With less than a month left in office, we’ve received word that the Trump administration is planning a massive sell-off of offshore drilling rights off the coasts of California, Alaska, the mid-Atlantic, and the Gulf of Mexico.

POLITICS: Year-end deal includes major energy, environment wins

While much more remains to be done, this year-end package takes critical steps forward in tackling climate change.

It helps the U.S. to lead the way in limiting half a degree Celsius of warming with a deal to phase down super-pollutant HFCs. It also includes the extension of tax credits for solar and wind that are essential to our transition to 100 percent clean electricity by 2035.

While negotiators largely sidelined energy issues during months of stalled talks on COVID-19 relief, a number of energy and environmental wins will hitch a ride on the year-end agreement.

California’s redwoods, sequoias and Joshua trees define the American West and nature’s resilience through the ages. Wildfires this year were their deadliest test.

General information

Over the last five decades, LCV and our state affiliates,together the Conservation Voter Movement, have fought to protect our Earth and everyone who inhabits it. To do so by working to solve our nation’s biggest environmental challenges,we need political solutions, at all levels of government. LCV brings people together to use their power to influence policy, hold leaders accountable, and elect officials who share our values. We are also committed to building a larger, more active, and more racially diverse movement because, for too long, communities of color have been excluded from environmental politics, and we are committed to fighting for inclusive, just solutions to our environmental challenges. In the end, LCV is working to build a vibrant participatory democracy that protects clean air, clean water, public lands, and a safe climate for everyone. This is what we fight for in Congress. This is what we fight for at the ballot box. This is what we fight for in cities and states across the country. Our Earth is worth fighting for.
