Tell your senator: Scott Pruitt is the wrong leader for the EPA President-elect Trump has nominated Scott Pruitt to serve as the next administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt—a man who has sued the EPA over public health protections—puts our country’s most fundamental clean air and clean water standards at risk. This nomination invites pollution, not protection, to the EPA. Take action now and stand up for clean air and clean water. Tell your senator Scott Pruitt is not the right leader for the job. Recipients Targeted recipients based on your addressEnvironmental Defense Fund Message An EPA led by Scott Pruitt is wrong for America Dear Senator, * Personalize your message I am shaken by Donald Trump's nomination of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as EPA Administrator. Our country needs -- and deserves -- an EPA Administrator who is guided by science, who respects America's environmental laws, and who values protecting the health and safety of all Americans ahead of the lobbying agenda of special interests. Since becoming Oklahoma's top legal officer in 2011, Pruitt has sued the EPA to stop vital protections for public health -- including standards for reducing soot and smog pollution that crosses interstate lines; protections against emissions of mercury, arsenic, acid gases and other toxic pollutants from power plants; and standards to improve air quality in national parks and wilderness areas. Since 2002, he's received more than $314,996 from fossil fuel industries. He was caught sending letters to President Obama and federal agency heads that had been written by energy industry lawyers. Not surprisingly, Pruitt has also questioned "the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind." On his own LinkedIn page, he boasts that he "led the charge with repeated notices and subsequent lawsuits against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for their [sic] leadership's activist agenda." As you consider Pruitt's nomination, I ask you to hold him accountable by asking tough questions about how he would defend America's core clean air and water standards. It is essential that we put Pruitt on record and bring to the Senate's and the public's attention how an anti-science and anti-public health agenda endangers our kids and communities.
