WILMINGTON, Del.Governor Carney issued the following statement on President Trump’s Executive Order to dismantle the Clean Power Plan, which would reduce carbon emissions from power plants and combat climate change:

“Delaware is already experiencing sea level rise twice as fast as the global average. More than 17,000 homes in Delaware are at risk of permanent inundation, and many more experience costly flooding. In addition to sea level rise, increased high heat days and changing precipitation patterns threaten Delaware’s essential $8 billion agricultural industry, and pose critical health threats. The safety and health of Delawareans, our economy, and our natural resources are dependent not only on our actions as a state, but on a shared, urgent commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a bad idea to abandon any tools that help us combat the real effects of climate change.”
