Dear Susan -

A newly leaked "agency action" plan by Trump's EPA transition team states that the EPA should not be funding scientific research -- apparently, "alternative facts" will now guide the EPA.

That news broke right after Trump deleted "climate change" from the EPA's website.

This is UNBELIEVABLE: Muzzling the EPA research threatens the safety of our drinking water, clean air and environment -- all he cares about is padding the pockets of Big Polluters.

In exchange for profit, he's bargained away our environment, our health and our lives.

The pace of Trump's attacks on science and our environment is astonishing.

Just this week, he removed all traces of "climate change" from the White House website.He ordered agencies to end all communications with the media and public. And then he launched a full-bore attack on any science that stands in the way of dirty fossil fuel development.

We're fighting back tooth and nail: to support our allies in the Senate that stand as a bulwark against this insanity; to mobilize millions to cry out and demand Trump's EPA protect our drinking water and air; to pressure and punish every politician that puts profits of polluters before our health.

But we've got a long fight ahead of us, and how much power and pressure we generate and sustain will depend on your financial support right now:

The American people did not vote to pollute our drinking water, cloud our air with toxins, or defile our environment. We still have allies in the Senate and the House. These friends need your support right now to fight back, resist, and defend our environment and our health.

Please -- say you're with me.

With determination,

Michael Brune

Executive Director

Sierra Club
