Ask your friends and relatives to call their Senators and urge them to oppose Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator.
Background: The Environmental Protection Agency's mission is to protect human health and the environment. Since its inception in 1970, EPA has taken these goals seriously. Take a look at photos of cities such as Pittsburgh and New York from 1970 and today to see visual evidence of EPA's success in reducing air pollution.
Throughout his career, Scott Pruitt has fought air, water, and - of course - climate change actions and regulations. He doesn't believe in protecting the environment. He is the wrong person for the job.
What you can do: Ask your friends and relatives to call their Senators and urge them to oppose Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator. Here are some talking points suggested by NRDC:
- I urge you to oppose President Trump's nomination of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to serve as administrator of the U.S. EPA.
- Pruitt's record and statements on climate change and environmental protection are deeply troubling, and should disqualify him from leadership of the EPA.
- Throughout his career, Attorney General Pruitt has been hostile to the EPA and its mission of protecting human health and the environment. From mocking climate change science as "speculative guesswork" to leading the charge to kill the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan and his many lawsuits to block the agency's efforts to protect air, water and our environment, Pruitt has made it clear that he's the wrong choice to enforce our nations' bedrock environmental laws and ensure that the EPA has the budget, staff, and resources to protect our health and the environment.
It looks as if the Senators shown here are particularly important: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150785465839996&set=gm.1185091454935173&type=3
