A few weeks ago, The Environmental Protection Agency's Administrator SUSPENDED enforcement of all regulations and environmental standards for the foreseeable future. And in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, the Trump administration pushed ahead to further endanger public health and sacrifice consumer savings in the name of polluter profits. Rolling back clean car emissions standards during an unprecedented public health and economic crisis is a reckless move by the current administration.
We understand that any halt on environmental protections is prioritizing corporate interests above the safety of our clean air, water and livable future. Now — when all Americans are rightly focused on their health & safety — is the wrong time to relax public health & environmental protections.
SIGN BELOW TO TAKE ACTION:
To: Member of Congress
I'm writing because of the EPA's recent decision to put profits of polluters above the wellbeing of Florida communities. President Trump & EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler rollback of America’s life and money-saving clean car standards, is an unprecedented attack on public health, the environment, and consumers. With the clean cars rollback, the Trump administration is throwing years of progress on reducing pollution at the same time turning its back on the Clean Air Act by refusing to respect the rights of states to protect their residents from dangerous air pollution.
I also do not support the suspension of environmental regulations and you should do everything in your power to stop this from happening. The EPA should not be granting the wish list of the American Petroleum Institute.
Now, more than ever, we must give the public a breath of fresh air during this health crisis rather than pushing a corporate polluter agenda that would make the dangerous situation spurred by this pandemic even worse. These latest rollbacks and regulation suspensions are an abandonment of science, reason, and responsibility at a time when we urgently need sound leadership!
Now is the time to act, and let our congressional representatives know that this is not time for business as usual -- this is time to put all hands on deck to support the communities hardest hit by the pandemic. But Andrew Wheeler's EPA policies threaten to throw more fuel on a raging fire. They have refused to respond to widespread demand that they halt attacks on environmental protections for our air and water, and sell-offs of our public lands. It’s past time for the Administration to pause these dangerous rollbacks of public health safeguards and sideline the corporate handouts, and focus on the needs of the public for once. We want the EPA to put people over profits first!
Let’s Protect our State and our lives. The future of Florida is in our hands!
