WE NEED THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA)

President Trump wants to cut the EPA by more than 30% and make drastic cuts to
the Department of Energy.

All of this needs to go through Congress. That's where we come in! Please contact
your federal representative and tell him/her NO to cutting the EPA and the Department of Energy. Also, we want to remain a part of the Paris Agreement.

The Department of Energy can help shift us away from our fossil fuel use and
more toward renewable energy. Why does Trump want to cut the Department? Could it be because he's beholding to his fossil fuel buddies? Sure looks that way.

Please contact your representative and tell him/her to leave the EPA alone in
Trump's proposed budget. Cuts in the EPA budget mean no one is watching the polluters. We can't let that happen.

Trump is also trying to gut the Clean Power Plan and he has advanced the
Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.

Contact your representatives and tell them to reject any cuts to the EPA. Here's a link that may be of help to you:

YOUR SENATORS CAN STOP THIS

Recently, the House of Representatives voted to halt limits on dangerous methane pollution. The Senate will soon have a chance to vote, and we're hoping they will vote against it. But we need your help.

Will you contact your two Senators and urge them to vote against any bill coming to them that halts limits on methane use? 2016 was the hottest year on record and rising methane emissions are responsible for about a quarter of that increased warming. Who's responsible for this rise in methane? Oil and gas companies!

The Senate has a chance to put the interest of Americans ahead of oil and gas companies, but they need to hear from us. They must vote against stopping methane limits which the Bureau of Land Management now has in place. Urge them to block limits on dangerous methane pollution, which is a very dangerous greenhouse gas. Stop leaking methane into the environment from leaks and flaring especially on our public lands. There are industries in the United States that offer cost-effective services to companies to find and fix methane gas leaks. Oil and gas companies must take advantage of these services.

Thank you for taking action on this issue by contacting your Senators.
