Now that Trump has nominated longtime coal lobbyist Andrew Wheeler to replace sleazy Scott Pruitt and lead the EPA, his appointment will need Senate confirmation -- and we cannot let this nomination go down without a fight.
Join us in demanding the Senate reject Wheeler and Trump’s devastating agenda.
Wheeler, a coal lobbyist and climate change denier, is clearly looking out for the polluters -- not our economy or public health. He wants to undo fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks. He's moving to undo a mercury rule keeping us from being poisoned by a potent neurotoxin -- a rule change that even the coal fired electric utilities don't want.
You just can’t make this stuff up: every time Trump can appoint a corporate hack to tear apart the regulations that keep us safe, he does. That’s why climate hawks need to squawk so loud that all of Capitol Hill can hear us! Andrew Wheeler has no business leading the EPA.
To the U.S. Senate: "Protect our economy and public health, and vote NO on Andrew Wheeler's confirmation. The longtime coal lobbyist wants to loosen emissions rules for coal plants and reduce fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks -- both moves that would prove disastrous. Andrew Wheeler has no business leading the EPA."
