Tell Congress: Say No to Trump and Perry's Catastrophic Clean Energy Cuts!
President Donald Trump and Secretary Rick Perry's plan for the Energy Department would be a disaster. The want to cut funding for clean energy programs by a whopping 70%, eliminate funding for research into new energy technology altogether and put millions of clean energy jobs at risk — while the administration dramatically scales up its embrace of fossil fuels and scales back America's commitment to the fight against climate change.
Congress has the power to stop this disastrous plan, but it will take overwhelming pressure to make them stand up to the White House.
Take action with the NRDC Action Fund today, and tell your members of Congress to stop Trump and Perry's short-sighted fossil fuel agenda, and protect funding for clean energy!

As your constituent I urge you to oppose the huge cuts to the Department of Energy that President Trump has proposed in his FY18 budget plan. This budget would terminate the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, a bipartisan initiative funding research into new energy technology, and reduce funding for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy by $1.4 billion, or 70 percent.

These cuts would badly hamper our ability to stay competitive in the emerging clean energy economy, and kill thousands of clean energy jobs across the country. I urge you to oppose them, and any budget that would slash funding for clean energy. Thank you.
