Keep fossil fuel industry funded climate change deniers like Myron Ebell away from the EPA
This petition had 662 supporters
Dear President-elect Trump, you said you would be a president for all Americans, well according to a March 2016 Gallup poll 64% of Americans are worried either a “great deal” or a “fair amount” about climate change, moreover 65% of Americans believe that human activity, e.g. burning fossil fuels, cutting down forests, and raising livestock, is to blame for increases in the Earth’s temperature over the last century. This shows that a strong majority of Americans, nearly two-thirds, acknowledge the scientific consensus on climate change which can be paraphrased as: The planet is heating up and it's very likely caused by human activity.
A study on climate change consensus which was based on six independent studies and published in April 2016 concluded that the 97% figure often cited as the scientific consensus on climate change is consistent with their findings. Therefore we, the signers of this petition, strongly and sincerely urge you to remove climate change skeptic Myron Ebell from his job of heading your administration’s Environmental Protection Agency transition team and replace him with someone who holds views on climate change that are more inline with those of over 9 out of 10 climate scientists and nearly 2 out of 3 of the Americans you have been entrusted to represent.
If you support this petition please sign it, share it, and send it to President-elect Trump and his administration directly. Thanks!
