Petitioning The Trump Administration

Speak out to keep the U.S. in the Paris Climate Agreement!!

SPEAK OUT TO KEEP THE US IN THE PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT!! On December 12, 2015, the world took a giant step forward in the fight against climate change with the Paris Agreement. Nearly 200 countries came together to reduce global warming pollution, fight climate change, and protect our only planet. But with the election of Donald Trump and appointment of climate denier Scott Pruitt as the head of the EPA, all our progress is in jeopardy. To fight global climate change, the United States MUST continue to be a leader and stay in the agreement. Speak out today and tell the Trump Administration they are dead wrong.

Petitioning Congress

Tell Congress to save the EPA

Donald Trump is trying to slash nearly 25% of the EPA’s budget and eliminate 20% of its staff. This is on top of a freeze on new hires, an order to EPA employees not to speak to the press, and climate science denier Scott Pruitt taking over the agency’s leadership. Now, a climate science denying Congressman from Florida is pushing forward a bill “to terminate the Environmental Protection Agency” (H.R. 861). The bill would totally dismantle the agency and threaten bedrock environmental protections which safeguard the air we breathe and the water we drink, and take the U.S. radically in the opposite direction in the fight against climate change. We MUST show Congress that Americans NEED and WANT the EPA! Sign the petition telling your member of Congress to protect the EPA from radical Republican anti-environmentalism in Congress and the White House.

Petitioning U.S. Senate

Don't let the EPA be taken over by polluters!

Tell the Senate to vote NO on Scott Pruitt for EPA Chief Donald Trump’s EPA nominee, Scott Pruitt, has called the risks from climate change “speculative guess work” and said the debate is “far from settled.” Pruitt is a fossil fuel industry favorite, and he can’t be trusted. If he is confirmed, Pruitt could finish what he started while suing the EPA- tearing down the Clean Power Plan, and blocking the Clean Water Rule for good. Sign the petition and tell your senators to listen to the majority of Americans who support climate action and oppose the nomination of Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator.

Petitioning President-Elect Trump

Demand President-Elect Trump Include Climate Action in His Presidency

With a climate change denier headed to the White House, we must speak out louder than ever have before to force Donald Trump to recognize the imminent danger of climate change. If we stay silent, we could easily see the last eight years of progress wiped out and the climate crisis becoming much, much worse. Trump listens to TV and Twitter; we know because we have seen him talk about it for the last year. If we stand strong together and draw attention to this global crisis, we can force him to take actions his advisors would never dream of. Sign the petition urging President-elect Trump to include climate action as a major part of his presidency.

Petitioning Paul Ryan

Tell Congress: Stop Denying Climate Change

Right now, more than 6 in 10 Americans are represented by someone in Congress who denies the reality of climate change. And far too often, these members of Congress – led by extreme climate change deniers like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell -- actively block legislation that helps our country combat climate change and create a healthier, safer future for our nation. We deserve elected officials who respect science and will take action to fight back against the most pressing issue of our time. Add your name to our petition to Republican leaders in Congress demanding that they acknowledge that climate change is real and human activity is a significant cause, and ACT.

Petitioning Donald Trump, Reince Priebus

Tell the GOP: Coal is NOT CLEAN ENERGY

The Republican Party’s 2016 Platform is bursting with egregious attacks on the environment and environmental programs, but one of the most dangerous lines in the entire party platform calls coal “clean energy.” After years of innovation, clean energy like wind and solar are on pace to replace coal while providing a boom to the economy and helping to reduce dangerous carbon pollution that fuels climate change. Donald Trump might dig coal, but a clean energy America doesn’t.  Sign the petition telling the Republican Party to dump “coal is clean energy” from the GOP platform and support real clean energy like wind and solar.
