On Jan. 18 the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee held its nomination hearing for Trump's pick for EPA administrator -- and the choice could hardly be worse. As Oklahoma's attorney general, Scott Pruitt took almost $350,000 in campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry. In return he regularly sided with corporate polluters at the expense of his constituents.
Please take a moment to call your senators and tell them to oppose Pruitt's appointment. And note: Voice mailboxes in Washington, D.C., have reportedly been full, so find numbers for your senators' state offices.
We can't let a climate denier run the EPA. Putting Pruitt in charge of the very agency he wants to dismantle will mean huge rollbacks to protections for our air, land and water.
