Donald Trump wants to gut the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to enforce essential safeguards for our air, water, and health.
In Executive Orders 13777 and 13783, which together comprise the most sweeping attack on climate action and climate safeguards in U.S. history, Trump directed EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to identify rules, regulations, and guidance that the Agency could roll back or weaken. Trump and Pruitt think rules that protecting our air and water from pollution like smog and soot, and safeguards that keep harmful chemicals and dangerous toxics out of our communities are a burden. But we know these protections keep us safe.
We must ensure that the EPA continues to develop safeguards based on a rigorous scientific process, not at the request of corporate polluters seeking to boost their profits at the expense of our health and the environment’s well-being.
