Donald Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency is actively dismantling the scientifically-sound methodology used for years to estimate the public health impacts of federal policies. This alarming disregard for facts will lead to more pollutants in our air and more premature deaths thanks to coal plants.
Since Day One, Trump has advanced the fossil fuel industry’s agenda over the best interests of the American people. The Trump administration stands with coal barons every chance they get. This latest move is just yet another example of his “priorities” in action -- with real consequences to show for it.
Add your name to tell the EPA to abide by science!
EPA -- The true cost of coal must be counted accurately, especially when people’s lives hang in the balance.
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."
