VHS Grad Pledges To Keep Fighting Climate Change After Trump Election
Krupp has been president of one of the world’s leading environmental advocacy groups, the Environmental Defense Fund, for more than 30 years. Under his leadership, EDF has worked to implement sustainable fishing, helped major corporations reduce toxic chemicals in their products and advised on a wide range of environmental legislation, most recently the Lautenberg Act on chemical safety. With the Paris Agreement, the U.S. made an ambitious pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 26% to 28% from their 2005 levels by the year 2025.
Trump, who stated during his campaign that global warming was a Chinese hoax, has pledged to cancel U.S. participation in the Paris Agreement. He also campaigned on increasing the use of coal, oil and gas in the U.S., which could cause U.S. emissions to rise.
Krupp is having none of it. “The election of Donald Trump has profoundly altered the landscape in which environmentalists work,” he wrote on Monday. “While environmental issues weren’t central to the campaign, President-elect Trump took positions during the campaign that were directly counter to ours — and contradicted by science. What didn’t change last night is our commitment to fight for a cleaner, healthier world. Our resolve is unshaken.”
