Don't Let Scott Pruitt Dismantle the EPA

Scott Pruitt, a climate change skeptic set on dismantling the EPA, has been nominated to head the EPA. We are petitioning the U.S. Senate to keep him from taking that position.
Scott Pruitt, an outspoken skeptics of climate change, represents a serious threat to the future of global climate change and cooperative efforts to prevent catastrophic and irreversible damage to the health of the planet. Regardless of political affiliation, we as Americans have a responsibility to ourselves, to future generations, and to the rest of the world to work towards a clean and sustainable United States.
It is absolutely critical that our country does not waste four valuable years deregulating fossil fuels and promoting coal mining and fracking. Myron Ebell, the leader of Donald Trump's EPA Transition Team, has said that he would “like to have more funding" to "combat the nonsense put out by the environmental movement.” Similarly, Scott Pruitt has claimed that the climate "debate is far from settled" and spent his time as Attorney General of Oklahoma suing the EPA over its environmental protection initiatives.
These men have displayed a fundamental unwillingness to heed the unanimous warnings of the scientific community that direct and immediate action is necessary to prevent disastrous damage to the stability of the planet.
We must make it clear to Donald Trump and the U.S. Senate that we will not stand for the appointment of Scott Pruitt, an ill-suited and completely unqualified candidate, to head the EPA. This petition calls for the U.S. Senate to block the confirmation of Scott Pruitt and any other climate change deniers that Myron Ebell and the transition team attempt to appoint within the EPA.
U.S. Senate: do not confirm Scott Pruitt to head the EPA. He has proven himself fundamentally unfit for his proposed position, and it is unacceptable to allow him to pursue his reckless environmental agenda.
It is time for the United States to lead the world in a sustainable future. Make your voice heard--this issue is too important to neglect.
