Please Tell U.S. Senators “NO Acid Rain”
New EPA Administrator must protect our Adirondacks

We were pleased to see President Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt resign. But it is still unclear who will take his place. Now President Trump will nominate Pruitt’s replacement and the U.S. Senate must confirm or deny that nominee.

Under Pruitt’s leadership, the EPA refused to enforce the Clean Air Act and regulations that protect our Adirondack Park’s waters, wildlife and people from upwind coal-fired power plant emissions that cause acid rain and smog.

Please help send a clear message to the U.S. Senate: only confirm a new EPA Administrator who will act in the best interests of clean air, clean water and public health in the Adirondacks and across the country. The next EPA Administrator should enforce the law and say “NO” to acid rain.

Please write your Senators now, and tell them:

  • When President Trump nominates his next EPA Administrator, please only confirm them if they will act in the best interests of clean air, clean water and public health in the Adirondacks and across the country.

  • President Trump’s last EPA Administrator refused to enforce clean air laws for upwind coal-fired power plants that would protect our Adirondack Park. Please oppose any nominee if they won’t pledge to uphold the law and fight any return of acid rain.

  • The Adirondack Park is a national treasure. More than 130,000 year-round residents and millions of visitors depend on preserving its clean water and clean air.

  • The next EPA Administrator must follow science and the law to preserve our Adirondack Park for current and future generations.

You can edit the letter to the right or send as-is. Thank you so much!
