Trump: Protect Environment From Toxic Infrastructure During Pandemic

Target: Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America

Goal: Don’t rollback vital environmental regulation that requires public review for major infrastructure projects.

The Trump administration plans to weaken the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) by limiting vital public review of federal infrastructure projects such as power plants, pipelines and freeways. This deregulation will speed up the permitting process by reducing the amount of time environmental agencies have to complete reviews.

Weakening NEPA regulation of pipelines, power plants and other polluting projects during the coronavirus crisis could have major public health and environmental consequences. The new rule will free federal agencies from having to consider the cumulative impact infrastructure projects will have on climate change, clean air and water.

Brett Hartl, the government affairs director at the Center for Biological Diversity, accused the Trump administration of “turning back the clock to when rivers caught on fire, our air was unbreathable and our most beloved wildlife was spiraling toward extinction.” Sign below to demand President Trump reverse his decision to rollback important NEPA regulations, especially during the coronavirus crisis.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

The NEPA regulation that requires public review of federal infrastructure projects is vital to the protection of clean air and water. Freeways, power plants and pipelines can cause devastating harm to the environment and, if unregulated, pose a huge threat to public health.

Continuing to deregulate NEPA will only put the planet and its people at further risk. I demand that you reverse your decision to weaken environmental rules that will speed up infrastructure permits and gut the public review process, especially during the coronavirus crisis.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Stop punishing the United States in the name of your petty jealousies against President Obama.
