Ignoring industrial pollution. Bending to Big Oil’s interests. Hiring a shady firm to terrorize staff who want to follow science.
These are just a few of the ways Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt are trying to destroy the Environmental Protection Agency from the inside.
The result? Communities across the country are facing hazardous exposure to toxic waste and polluted air -- all to line the coffers of corporate and fossil fuel interests.
Scott Pruitt is a climate denier who has spent his career suing the Environmental Protection Agency. Now that he’s in charge of that same agency, he’s doing everything he can to undermine its core mission.
Pruitt pushed out more than 700 agency staff and started monitoring the emails of anyone who expressed concerns with the agency’s direction. He took steps to gut the Clean Power Plan. And he is spending more time courting fossil fuel industry executives than holding them accountable for destroying our air, water and climate.
Together Trump and Pruitt pose the gravest threat to our environment and public health that we've ever seen. We need your help to fight back.
Trump has stacked his government with anti-science extremists, billionaires and fossil fuel industry shills. Now, they’re using their positions to advance their corporate interests -- not the interests of the American people.
These attacks on our critical social and environmental protections go beyond the EPA. Last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention banned seven words -- including “science-based,” “diversity,” “transgender” and “evidence-based” -- from budget documents.
Congress could step in and stop Trump and Pruitt but instead, it’s letting them destroy our environment to the benefit of corporate polluters. We need you to urge your Senators to do their jobs and stand up to Trump!
