Scott. Pruitt. Resigns.

Donald Trump's EPA director, Scott Pruitt, has resigned.

It was BEYOND time for him to go.

He was the target of multiple corruption investigations. He called himself a "leading advocate against the EPA's agenda." He questioned the reality of climate change. And he has gone to bat over and over for corporate polluters who pump toxins like mercury into our air and water.

But do you think he would have stepped down if we had stayed quiet? No. Way.

Your phone calls. Your letters. Your demonstrations. Your discussions with friends and neighbors. THAT is what made the difference here. We came together as a country and said enough to undermining the EPA's very mission.

Over the coming weeks, we'll learn who Donald Trump wants as Pruitt's replacement. Knowing Trump's desire to dismantle the EPA from the inside, the choice will probably be someone else totally unqualified, so our work is far from over.

Stay tuned. I'll keep you posted as we learn more.
