Democratic AGs have become one of the most effective advocates for and protectors of climate action in the United States.
In recent years, and in the face of aggressive environmental protection rollbacks from the Trump Administration, Democratic AGs took more than 600 major actions to protect our communities and public lands, hold polluters accountable, and stop bad actors from turning back the clock on climate action.
