Sign the petition above, or contact your lawmakers below, to oppose Andrew Wheeler's nomination as Trump's new EPA Administrator.

Since he became Acting Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency — after a swell of grassroots activism forced his predecessor, Scott Pruitt, to resign his post — Andrew Wheeler has ignored sound science and attacked safeguards that protect us all against harmful pollution.

In his almost seven months on the job, he has led efforts to weaken or eliminate meaningful limits on the largest sources of climate pollution, including smokestacks, tailpipes, and oil & gas facilities. If he’s successful, his work will lead to billions of tons of additional climate pollution.

And now, President Trump has nominated him to be the official EPA Administrator. Take action today, and tell your Senators to stand against this dangerous nomination.
