U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i), co-chair of the Senate Climate Action Task Force, released the following statement after President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order reversing policies aimed at fighting climate change.

“President Trump’s latest executive order reverses the historic progress we’ve made on climate for short-term gains that will go straight into the pockets of oil, gas and coal companies. This is another attempt by this administration to weaken environmental protections and America’s leadership and economic dominance in clean energy. Now is not the time to turn our back on the growing clean energy economy, and that’s exactly what this executive order will do.”
