Sign the Petition: Reject Polluting Pruitt!

President Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency is Scott Pruitt – a man who described himself as a “leading advocate against the EPA’s agenda.” It doesn’t get much worse than this, and I’m counting on you to take action: Add your name right now to tell the U.S. Senate to reject Polluting Pruitt’s nomination!

If confirmed by the Senate, Pruitt do what he's done as Oklahoma's Attorney General: use his position to do the bidding of big corporations and undo decades of progress on protecting our air and water. Pruitt questions the reality of climate change and has built a career shielding corporate polluters from accountability – even when they poison the clean air and water that our kids and communities count on.

It's so bad, that he once took an oil company's complaint about environmental protections, copied it virtually word-for-word onto his letterhead as Attorney General, and sent it to EPA as the position of the State of Oklahoma!

We must act now to protect the future of our planet. I’m fighting back. Join me by signing my petition right now to tell the U.S. Senate to vote “No” on Polluting Pruitt’s nomination!
