Protect Our EPA
Donald Trump is dead-set on dismantling our environmental protections--and one of the most dangerous weapons at his disposal is spending cuts. After being starved of funding for years, the Environmental Protection Agency is now the target of a full-scale assault by the Trump administration, which is pursuing the steepest cuts in the agency’s history.

Scott Pruitt and Ryan Zinke seemingly handed the EPA and DOI over to corporate polluters. They debased these agencies and endangered public health. Americans are relying on the Democrats to stand up, stop these destructive actions and protect people and the planet.
Wheeler is set to make his first appearance as EPA chief in front of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee today. As he testifies, it’s important to remember that Wheeler is still dutifully advancing Pruitt’s anti-environment agenda. Here are four ways that prove Wheeler is nothing more than a…
Wheeler is a former coal lobbyist who is cozy with climate skeptics and fossil fuel interests. After a career of over 25 years in Washington, he has accumulated some truly unsavory connections.
