Scott Pruitt has made a career out of suing the agency he is now nominated to lead. With fourteen lawsuits against the EPA (some still ongoing) it is clear the Mr. Pruitt is not at all in a position to accept this role. 

In addition, Mr. Pruitt has failed to accept the all but unanimous conclusion by the scientific community, that climate change is happening and that human factors are the primary catalyst. As the entire world continues to take steps to reverse the rising temperatures and the consequences that accompany that rise, the United States cannot afford to relax regulations at such a dire time. Mr. Pruitt has made it clear throughout his time as Attorney General of Oklahoma that he opposes such regulations. Mr. Pruitt's own website cites him as a "leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda."

Now is not the time for politics, but for the safeguarding of the planet and our country from corporations whose interest lie in their pocketbooks, not in our environment.

We urge our TN senators to vote no on Mr. Pruitt's approval until the current administration can find a nominee for the Environmental Protection Agency who cares about protecting the environment.
