It's official: EPA has new leadership. Scott Pruitt now sits in America's top environmental seat. And the Trump Administration is already pushing to roll back the Clean Power Plan—America's first-ever national limits on the carbon pollution spewing from our fossil fuel-fired power plants. But at his own confirmation hearing, Administrator Pruitt stated that "there is a legal obligation presently for the EPA Administrator to respond to the CO2 issue through proper regulations."
But your members of Congress still answer to you, and it's up to Americans everywhere to ensure that Congress holds him to those words, and actively works to protect the EPA. The truth is there's not only a legal obligation, but a moral one, to ensure we don't leave the burden of climate change to our kids—which is why we can't stop speaking out for their future. This is our chance to protect them from not only climate catastrophe, but also the dangers that go along with this pollution—asthma attacks, hospital visits, and deaths. We also need Administrator Pruitt to defend programs that reduce pollutants like mercury, smog, and the particle pollution that harms scenic vistas in our national parks.
Let's overwhelm Congress with support for climate action. Send your elected officials your message today!
Please ensure the EPA remains strong. Support strong clean air, clean water, and climate pollution limits.
Dear [Decision Maker],
