Don't Let a Coal Lobbyist Run the EPA

The Trump Administration has just nominated Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler to officially become the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This nomination is dangerous, irresponsible, and unacceptable.

Wheeler's fingerprints are all over the very worst environmental proposals of the Trump Administration. He has proven, first as Deputy EPA Administrator under Scott Pruitt, and then as Acting Administrator, that he has no interest in protecting people's health and safety, putting us on a path to climate safety, or reining in toxic chemicals or harmful air pollution. Wheeler was for many years a lobbyist for the coal industry — and it's clear from his actions that corporate polluters are his first priority.

Any EPA head must put protecting our children first — Andrew Wheeler has proved he will not do so. Tell your Senators that parents oppose this nomination.

SUBJECT: Parents oppose the nomination of Andrew Wheeler as EPA Administrator


Dear [Decision Maker],

As a parent, I am deeply concerned by the nomination of Andrew Wheeler for Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. He has proven, first as Deputy EPA Administrator under Scott Pruitt, and then as Acting Administrator, that he has no interest in protecting people's health and safety, putting us on a path to climate safety, or reining in toxic chemicals or harmful air pollution.

Wheeler's intention is not to protect our children. It is to benefit his polluter friends. As a former coal industry lobbyist, it's clear from his actions that corporate polluters are his first priority.

In his time at EPA, Wheeler has led efforts to dismantle America's Clean Car Standards, attack America's Clean Power Plan, attack the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards, and more key protections that keep our communities and our children safe. This is not the person who should hold the office of top environmental enforcement official.

Please vote NO on the confirmation of Andrew Wheeler as head of the EPA.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]
