Lives are at stake when funding for the EPA is up for debate.

Oppose Scott Pruitt

Posted by Barbara Gottlieb on January 30, 2017

smogIt's pretty outrageous when the person nominated to lead the Environmental Protection Agency seems to be focused on dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency.

But that's the case with Scott Pruitt. As my colleague Kathy Attar wrote last week, Mr. Pruitt has taken actions to weaken clean air protections, including filing a lawsuit against the EPA's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.

That's only the tip of the iceberg. As Attorney General of Oklahoma, Mr. Pruitt also:

  • Sued the EPA 14 times.
  • Cast doubt on climate change.
  • Advocated for policies that benefit the oil and gas industry – even signing his own name onto documents prepared by the industry and passing them off as his own.

We as a nation deserve an EPA Administrator who will continue enforcing the laws designed to give us clean air, clean water and a livable climate. Mr. Pruitt has come down repeatedly on the other side of that very basic divide.

Call your U.S. senators today (202-224-3121) and ask them to vote No on Scott Pruitt.

As a deeply worried American taxpayer, mother, biologist and avid outdoorsperson, I urge you NOT to allow Scott Pruitt to eviscerate our Environmental Protection Agency, further destabilize our global climate, and poison America's air, water, and environment. Please vote NO on Scott Pruitt's confirmation to head the EPA, and please urge your colleagues on both sides of the aisle to do the same.
