Please add your name to this urgent petition to:
1. Halt steps aimed at possible purge of fact-based employees at Energy Department.
2. Block nomination of climate change denier Scott Pruitt to head EPA.
3. Block expected nomination of Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.
The Donald Trump transition team has requested the names of all Department of Energy employees and contractors who have attended climate change policy conferences. Many have reported a climate of intimidation, and there is fear of a witch hunt.
Click here to nip this in the bud.
Trump has kept up his policy of nominating people opposed to the very mission of the agency they would run by naming oil profiteer and climate denier Scott Pruitt to head the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).
Click here to build resistance to this outrage.
And Trump is expected to nominate the CEO of ExxonMobil Corporation Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State, despite the fact that his company is under investigation by multiple state attorneys general for misleading its investors and the U.S. public about climate change for the past 40 years. While Tillerson admits the reality of climate chaos, he has not been made to answer for ExxonMobil's role in climate destruction and in lying about it.
Click here to demand that he be held accountable and blocked from public office.
