Greens ready for Trump war | TheHill


Environmental groups are ready for a fight with President-elect Donald Trump.

Trump’s victory in November’s presidential election was a shock to the green movement, which is now consolidating opposition to a GOP-controlled government bent on undoing President Obama’s environmental agenda.

If the initial reaction was depression and despair, environmental activists now sound energized to take on Trump.

“Our goal is to channel that sense of outrage into political pressure,” said Jamie Henn, the co-founder of climate group 350.org.

“We’re happy people are venting on Facebook, but we’d much rather they start marching in the streets.”

There are signs that opposition to Trump is helping environmental groups raise money and add members.Source: Greens ready for Trump war | TheHill
