Don’t Put Big Oil in Charge of EPA

Target: Donald Trump, President-Elect of the United States

Goal: Stop climate change denier from becoming head of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Donald Trump, President-Elect of the United States, has appointed climate change denier Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Currently Attorney General of Oklahoma, Pruitt has vehemently denied the resounding evidence for climate change.

Pruitt’s appointment as head of the EPA is startling. Not only does he deny climate change and the overwhelming evidence of most scientists, but he also has extensive business interests in the oil and gas industries. He has promised to overturn President Obama’s environmental executive actions and has argued that current environmental regulations are equivalent to a “war on coal.” He is also against regulations for clean water.

All progress the nation has made towards cleaner, renewable energy may be destroyed under the direction of Pruitt. He will put the interests of the fossil fuel industry above the interests of the planet. So far, Trump has done nothing to signal his willing to “drain the swamp” and unite Americans for the better. Demand that he replace his current choice for the EPA with someone who truly cares about the future of the environment.


Dear Mr. Trump,

Your appointment of Attorney General Scott Pruitt as head of the EPA is just the latest concerning nomination you have made for your cabinet. Pruitt does not believe in climate change, despite the overwhelming evidence presented by nearly all respected scientists. He lobbies for the fossil fuel industry and does not care if the only home we have is destroyed for his benefit and the benefit of other millionaires.

You want to “drain the swamp,” but you currently have done nothing but appoint men and women who wish to push America backward, not forward. Your appointment of Pruitt will only harm the nation, not make it “great.” If you want to unite Americans, rescind your nomination of Pruitt and instead raise awareness of climate change.

  1. The Joker was voted into office.. not expecting any responsible, intelligent decisions. The only thing he’s going to make great is the money in his pockets and the entire world will pay for his ignorance and destruction.

  2. Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

    why u hire that evil tyrant like u? we dont need oil! we don’t want oily skin! we don’t want grease!

  3. Dream on…..he’ll do exactly what he wants, when he wants, and how he wants no matter how many petitions we sign. Will there even be a planet left when he’s finished with it?

  4. It seems to me that they like to have idiots as presidents so they can manipulate them to do their will. The power behind the throne, puppet master unseen hand what ever you call them.Its scary that Trump is buddies with Killer Putin.

  5. They will all get theirs in time, too bad they are talking us with them. A better place fpr the both, would be
    Stalac 17 don’t you think.Putin, won’t have them over there tough, for fear they might find oil in some of those places, from left over prisones.

  7. This is like putting a kid in an ice cream parlour…..can get of any restrictions now.
    Oh well, Americans voted Trump in – let see if they get what they wanted.

  8. Trump should not be allowed to take office. He’s a danger to the nation and will let Russia infiltrate even more than they already have. Trump supporters truly are stupid, who go to his rallies and listen to him say how he lied to them and they clap for it!! Ugh. The Republicans baby.
