Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt will be nominated to lead the EPA. During his career Pruitt has denied climate science and vigorously fought environmental regulations — particularly the climate change and emissions rules from the EPA.
The new head of the EPA must be guided by science, respect our environmental laws, and prioritize public health ahead of the wishes of the fossil fuel industry.
Pruitt meets NONE of these criteria.
** Please call Senator Patty Murray and Senator Maria Cantwell to ask them to strongly oppose Scott Pruitt’s nomination. **

“Hi, I’m a constituent of Senator Murray, and I’d like to leave a brief message for her.”
“I’m calling to urge her to strongly oppose Scott Pruitt’s nomination to lead the EPA, and to please work with her colleagues in the Senate to make sure Pruitt is not confirmed for such a crucial job.”
The staffer may ask for your name and address so the Senator can send you a reply.
That’s it! You’re done!
*** As always, please post a reply here after you call so we can track our impact and celebrate your efforts. Thank you! ***
