Tell your Senator to reject the nomination of Scott Pruitt as EPA Administrator

Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma Attorney General, is known for being a climate-change denier, for his close ties to the oil and gas industry and for suing the EPA on behalf of those interests to dismantle clean air and water regulations. President-elect Trump’s nomination of Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency is like the fox guarding the hen house.

Mr. Pruitt is unfit to lead the agency tasked with “protecting human health and the environment.” Please act. Tell your senator to reject this nomination and demand a nominee who will protect all Americans’ right to a safe and healthy environment.

Pruitt boasts that he is "a leading advocate against EPA's activist agenda." He has falsely implied that fracking doesn’t contaminate drinking water supplies. He has filed numerous lawsuits attacking commonsense safeguards that reduce industrial pollution from the fossil fuel industry, and has even been part of a coordinated national corporate campaign to undo the federal pollution protections that are supposed to keep our air and water clean.

The head of the EPA should be working to ensure that our air is clean to breathe and our water is safe to drink—not to ensure that polluters get a free pass. Take action today and urge your senator to reject Scott Pruitt’s nomination and protect the health of our communities.
