Protect Our Environment — Tell your Senator to Vote No on Wheeler – to keep the environment safe!
President Trump has nominated Andrew Wheeler, a coal industry lobbyist and a denier of climate change, to the second highest post at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). By nominating Wheeler to the EPA, the president is again placing more importance on big business, than the protections that have been put into place to Make America Safe.
In recent months, President Trump has worked to deregulate industries that have been some of the worst sources of environmental pollution. He has worked to dismantle agencies, like the EPA, by placing individuals like Coal Lobbyist Andrew Wheeler, to high-level positions. Many of these individuals, like Wheeler, are committed to removing environmental protections.
To keep the EPA from being taken over by those that seeking the removal environmental protections, in favor of big business and industry, it is important to prevent individuals like Coal Lobbyist Andrew Wheeler from being confirmed as the second in command at the EPA.
Lobbyist like Wheeler have built their careers championing for the rights of big business and industry, with little concern for the well-being of those people that will be impacted by their activities. To combat the harm that could occur if a coal industry insider like Wheeler is confirmed to a leadership role at the EPA we must take action now.
