President Trump’s nomination of Scott Pruitt, a climate-change denier and bedfellow of polluter lobbyists, to head the Environmental Protection Agency is an attack on the right of all Americans to safe, breathable air and drinkable clean water.
The EPA is responsible for upholding national air quality standards and regulating discharges of pollutants into bodies of water to protect people and the environment. Pruitt has filed numerous lawsuits attacking commensense safeguards that reduce industrial pollution from the fossil fuel industry, and has even been part of a coordinated national corporate campaign to undo the federal pollution protections that are supposed to keep our air and water clean.

When you call, you don’t need to say a lot—just tell them your name, where you’re calling from, and this main message:
Hello. My name is [Full Name] from [City and State].
I urge Senator ______ to please oppose President Trump’s nomination of Scott Pruitt as Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt is a climate-change denier who opposes commonsense environmental protections that guard us from cancer, asthma, toxic drinking water and other health problems. He has long opposed responsible rules for cutting toxic pollution, including the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, and he’s been in lockstep with the oil industry for years. He is an untenable choice and his nomination is a threat to the well-being of the American people.
NOTE: Some offices have been getting so many calls, so if you receive a busy signal please consider calling back later. In the meantime, if you haven’t already you can send your Senators a message urging them to reject the nomination of Scott Pruitt as EPA Administrator.
