Make The Environmental Protection Agency Do Its Job

Target: Scott Pruitt, EPA Administrator

Goal: Bring the EPA back on track to protecting the environment.

Scott Pruitt is known to be a global warming non-believer and for his support of large corporations and the deregulation of toxic waste dumping. This man was appointed by President Trump to run the Environmental Protection Agency in an effort to disprove the necessity and effectiveness of the EPA.

The Washington Post states that an aide who worked for Trump’s campaign has been put in charge of distributing hundreds of millions of dollars in EPA grants to communities and corporations and according to The Huffington Post, “regional offices are a who’s who of fellow fossil fuel lovers and climate change deniers.”

Despite Pruitt’s efforts to dismantle the EPA and show unwavering support for “corporate polluters,” there are a few watchdogs in place gearing up to be a thorn in his side. The Beyond Coal Campaign and the Sierra Club are two organizations working to collectively stop Pruitt from removing public health safeguards and making it easier for corporations to have a negative effect on the environment.

The Huffington Post summarizes a New York Times article exposing Pruitt for, “running the agency in a secretive, hostile fashion that’s making it hard for staff to do their job.” The article goes on to state, “budgets get cut, health safeguards rolled back, and polluters high-five knowing their bottom line is being protected by Scott Pruitt.” Sign this petition and let Scott Pruitt know that his actions are unacceptable, and the public demands that the EPA be allowed to do its job and protect everyone from human actions with detrimental effects on our environment.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Pruitt,

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we have seen people from all over the United States and beyond, join together to help others that have been affected by the storm. People have banned together to help bring safety, food, shelter and clean water to the people and animals of the region. While we have been exhibiting the very behaviors of basic humanity that ensure we can all live in harmony, the Environmental Protection Agency, under your direction, has gone to great lengths to ensure hostility is demonstrated and a blatant disregard for human and animal safety from toxic waste is upheld.

You have skirted truth and accountability, and continuously fail to do and prevent the employees of the EPA from doing what needs to be done in order to ensure safeguards are followed by corporations also affected by the storms. This lack of accountability has caused and will continue to cause health hazard and distress to the surrounding communities and wildlife. We demand that you allow the ethical and trained staff of the Environmental Protection Agency to do their job and enforce protective measures and policies that have been put in place as safeguards.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
