MAKE A CALL: Scott Pruitt is now in charge of the EPA

By Newsroom America Feeds at 17 Feb 2017

Dear Mary,

The nomination of Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an extreme choice that puts the most basic protections that safeguard the air we breathe and the water we drink at high risk.

As the attorney general of Oklahoma, whose own bio describes him as "a leading advocate against the EPA's activist agenda[1] ," Pruitt spent his time in office working to allow big polluters to pollute more rather than protecting the health, clean air and clean water of his constituents.

Our senator, Senator Tester, will play a key role in blocking Scott Pruitt's nomination. Hearings in the Senate for Pruitt will start this week.

Call 202-750-2411 or text PRUITT to 69866 now and make sure Senator Tester to vote no on Scott Pruitt's nomination, because he is unfit to lead the EPA.

The lifesaving work of the EPA is too important to let someone like Scott Pruitt ruin it, because he is committed to protecting polluters, not people. We've worked too hard for new protections for our air, water and climate to let Pruitt dismantle them. We've already seen reductions in air pollution, mercury pollution in fish, and we've seen reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

Putting the polluters' favorite lawyer in charge of the agency that is supposed to protect the health of all Americans will spell disaster for all of us.

That's where Senator Tester comes in. As a swing vote in the Senate, Senator Tester needs to hear from us in order to vote against Scott Pruitt and demand an EPA nominee who believes in the agency's mission and will carry out the law.

Call 202-750-2411 or text PRUITT to 69866 now and make sure Senator Tester rejects the extreme nomination of Scott Pruitt as the head of the EPA.

More pollution means more asthma attacks, more premature deaths, more mercury poisoning, and an out of control climate. Putting Scott Pruitt in charge of the EPA is like putting a tobacco CEO in charge of a hospital.

We can stop this extreme nomination for the head of the EPA, but it will not happen if you don't call now.

Call 202-750-2411 or text PRUITT to 69866 now and protect our communities, our air, our water, and our climate.

Thanks for all you do,

Mike Scott Senior Organizing Representative
