Dear Susan -

Trump's new EPA chief Scott Pruitt didn't want you to see them.

But a court just forced the release of emails sent between Scott Pruitt and Big Oil. The contents? Cozy. Creepy. Corrupt. Here's just a snippet:

"Thank you to your respective bosses and all they are doing to push back against President Obama's EPA and its axis with liberal environmental groups..."

Pruitt let Big Oil tell him what to say, as they literally drafted anti-clean air talking points and letters for his office.

And now, Pruitt's doing their dirty work to dismantle the EPA and destroy its ability to protect our air and water.

TODAY -- we're launching an EMERGENCY 48 HRS campaign to recruit 1,000 monthly donors to defend the EPA and our environment:

Any day we expect an attempt to take environmental cops off the beat -- and let Big Oil and dirty polluters have their way with our air and water. Trump and Pruitt's plan is simple: eliminate huge portions of the EPA's budget and make it virtually impossible to enforce critical environmental laws.

We must stop them.

We're taking them to court and mobilizing a massive grassroots campaign. Millions must speak out, make calls, jam up their phone lines, protest in the streets, and show up at town halls. We must tell Congress to stand up for us and fight back against these disastrous policies. We cannot let them get away with this. And we won't -- if we can fund our emergency efforts.

We only have 48 hours to raise the necessary funds to set our plans into action. We've got legal paperwork being drawn up, and campaign plans finalized. The fate of our air, water and environment now rests in your hands:

How much pressure we generate during this first week Pruitt's in office will set the stage for the next four years. We must fight harder than ever -- and we must fight now.

This is urgent -- please respond by MIDNIGHT Saturday.
