Sierra Club: Trump Speech “Silent on the Rising Climate Crisis Threatening American Communities”

WASHINGTON, DC –(ENEWSPF)–July 21, 2016.  Donald Trump just delivered an acceptance speech which was leaked earlier tonight. Despite soaring, record temperatures and a deepening climate crisis, his speech does not even mention the word “climate” a single time.

In Response, Sierra Club Political Director Khalid Pitts Released the Following Statement:

“Donald Trump has never been at a loss for words, but his address tonight was silent on the rising climate crisis threatening American communities across the nation. In one of the most dark and foreboding nomination speeches in our history, its tone foreshadows the fate which awaits environmental protections if he is elected president.”

“While Trump spoke of American leadership and strength, if elected, he would be the only head of state on earth to deny the science and dangers of climate change, undermining America’s global leadership and weakening our position before every negotiation we face.”
