After the news broke last Thursday night that Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., refused to vote for any measures to mitigate climate change in a budget reconciliation bill this month, environmentalists and progressive Democrats erupted in frustration.

“There truly aren’t words for how appalled, outraged and disappointed we are,” Tiernan Sittenfeld, the legislative director at the League of Conservation Voters, said in a statement. “Senator Manchin had every opportunity to stand up for climate, jobs and justice and save families money when they need it most, but instead he is choosing to stand with polluters. We urge him to reconsider — our children’s future depends on it.”
