Fire EPA Chief Who Denies Climate Change

Target: President Donald Trump

Goal: Fire climate-change-denying EPA Chief Scott Pruitt

One of President Trump’s biggest mistakes in his short tenure as president has been his appointment of Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency. As the official governmental agency in charge of protecting our environment, the EPA is in a unique position in leading the movement to curb CO2 production. Unfortunately, EPA Chief Scott Pruitt denies human impact on climate change, particularly the relation between CO2 levels and temperature.

Under Chief Pruitt, the EPA has already demonstrated that they will no longer treat climate change as a priority, despite outrage from the scientific community. Pruitt recently fired half the EPA’s board of scientific counselors. Pundits fear that this is to pave the way for Pruitt to fill the board with fanboys of the fossil fuel industry. Back in February, a string of emails revealed Pruitt to have close ties with the fossil fuel industry, which has a clear economic agenda to disrupt environmental protection policies. 

A copy of the science section of the 2018 National Climate Assesment, recently leaked to thew New York Times, focuses on rapid rises in U.S. temperatures since 1980. Additionally, the assessment states that the last few decades have been the warmest in the last 1500 years. Until we have an EPA chief willing to recognize this human-caused threat, we will be unable to correct this dangerous course.  President Trump has already fired FBI Director Comey as well as threatened to fire U.S. Attorney General Sessions. Now it’s time for President Trump to fire someone that doesn’t deserve their position.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump:

The biggest threat to the world’s posterity is climate change. No matter how much wealth your family stores up over the generations nor how great your legacy grows, the threat of climate change remains inescapable.

 If you truly want your legacy to be remembered, be the president that curbs climate change and fights the fossil fuel industry rather than embracing it. Nobody alive in this moment has more power for good than you. Be good and start your fight against climate change by firing EPA Chief Pruitt.

You, more than anyone, know that a leader without respect becomes ineffectual. Chief Pruitt has lost the respect of the entire EPA because he denies human-made climate change. He’s been compromised by the fossil fuel industry, and it is time to let him go.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
