Donald Trump nominated Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency. It’s what we’d all feared would happen.
Pruitt doesn’t believe the science on climate change. He’s been called “fossil fuel’s mouthpiece”, an ally of big oil, and took $300,000 from fossil fuel corporations in his last campaign. An oil executive ran Pruitt’s re-election campaign.
He’s suing to stop the Clean Power Plan. He’s fought to allow companies to keep polluting with soot, mercury and other toxic substances. He once submitted a letter to the EPA written by an oil and gas company!
Does it sound like he’s the man to protect our clean air and water? Sign this petition. Stop Scott Pruitt’s nomination!
