PREVENT BUDGET CUTS TO ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMS

 

Trump's budget proposal would cut the Environmental Protection Agency's funding by 31%, eliminating 3,200 jobs, 50 programs, and $100 million in funding for climate change programs.

 

The budget would also slash or eliminate funding for:

  • Cleanup of hazardous industrial waste sites

  • Climate change and renewable energy programs, advanced energy and vehicle research

  • U.N.-affiliated Green Climate Fund and Global Climate Change Initiative

  • Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

  • NASA's missions to monitor Earth's oceans and carbon dioxide levels

 

Trump proposed these cuts despite the clear, pressing threat that climate change represents to our health, environment, and national security. In proposing dramatic cuts to agencies that conduct crucial research on climate change and renewable energy, Trump's budget outline threatens American jobs, health, and safety.

I'm calling in opposition to Trump's proposed budget cuts to the EPA and other programs that fight climate change and promote renewable energy. Environmentally friendly policies will create new jobs in clean energy, and are critical to the health and safety of all Americans.
