Target: Robert Menendez, United States Senator
Goal: Block Scott Pruitt, a known climate change denier, from leading the EPA.
Donald Trump’s desired cabinet is getting worse by the day, as he has just named Scott Pruitt as his choice for administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. A man who denies climate change is real despite hard evidence that it is, a shill for the fossil fuels we are trying to phase out completely, Pruitt is the worst possible choice for an agency that is centered on protecting our environment.
Even with all of our hard work, the environment is still not what it should be. We have done our best to phase out fossil fuels but we are still faced with pollution, unclean water, industrial and agricultural waste, which only serve to make the problem of climate change worse. It is hard enough to make meaningful strides towards stopping climate change, and with a known denier of the problem in charge of the EPA, the problem will only get worse. In addition, fossil fuels have caused too much damage to the air as it is, and we are already facing the danger of them making a comeback.
We cannot allow this. Our environment is much too important to leave Scott Pruitt in charge of an agency designed to protect it. There is no telling what he could do to the agency and the planet itself. Sign this petition to demand Pruitt be blocked from nomination for EPA administrator.
Dear Senator Menendez,
Donald Trump has named climate change denier and fossil fuel shill Scott Pruitt as his choice for administrator of the EPA, another link in the long chain of horrible choices for his cabinet. It is hard enough for us to keep the planet and the environment clean and safe; we still must contend with pollution and waste fouling up our water and air. We are so close to phasing out fossil fuels once and for all, but if Pruitt is in charge of the EPA, all the work we have done thus far will be for naught.
You have the power to block this man’s nomination for EPA Administrator. We do not need someone shilling for dangerous fuels as well as denying a problem that has existed for nearly a decade and has been scientifically proven as true. Please deny Pruitt a chance to become EPA administrator, for the good of this planet.
