Block Moron From Heading Department of Energy

Target: Robert Menendez, United States Senator

Goal: Block Rick Perry’s nomination for head of the Department of Energy.

Rick Perry has been picked by Donald Trump to head the Department of Energy — a department whose name he once forgot and wanted to eliminate entirely. Not only does the Energy Department craft environmental-related policies but it also controls the nation’s nuclear weapons programs. Is it possible that we’re really going to cede control of not only the environment, but also the nukes to an ignoramus who couldn’t even remember the name of this department?

During his run as governor of Texas, Perry endlessly promoted the dangerous practice of fracking, and is currently not only a supporter of the Dakota Access Pipeline, but sat at the head of the board of the company in charge of building it. He is yet another denier of climate change and a champion of the big oil industry. Along with Scott Pruitt and Rex Tillerson, he rounds out a terrible trio who will destroy our environment; land will be ruined by endless fracking, the denial of the Dakota Access Pipeline could be reversed, and wild animals will be wiped out, the survivors losing their homes and suffering from a lack of food sources.

Once again, Trump is picking the worst possible people for his cabinet, and we must fight their nominations. We cannot let the ignorant, callous Rick Perry and his defenses of big oil destroy our planet. Sign this petition to block Perry’s nomination for head of the department he once wanted to completely eliminate.


Dear Senator Menendez,

Donald Trump has chosen Rick Perry, a climate change denier and supporter of big oil, as head of the Department of Energy. This is the same man who once forgot the name of this department and when reminded, said he would like to eliminate it. Perry was responsible for fracking all across the country during his run as governor of Texas, and supports the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Perry in a position of authority will equal more damage to the land as well as our population of humanity and wildlife, as well as encourage big oil’s comeback. This man, in addition to Scott Pruitt and Rex Tillerson, is a severe danger to our planet’s well-being. You must do everything in your power to stop this man from becoming the head of a department he wanted to destroy. Please do not let our planet fall into ruin due to Donald Trump’s terrible cabinet choices.

    Perhaps you should change the title of the petition. Insulting and rude petitions, however well written they are, will fail because of your stupidity. I will not waste my good name signing this however much I agree.

  2. I doubt this man can spell his own last name. He has no business being the head of his own welfare, let alone of an important department that affects every person on the planet.
