Bowing to the interests of wealthy corporate lobbyists, the Trump’s EPA refuses to ban chlorphyrifos, a pesticide sprayed on fruits and vegetables, and known to damage the brains of fetuses and children.
View photos from our 6th annual Play-In for Climate Action! See our kids at play and our Moms Clean Air Force members on Capitol Hill delivering a public message to 100 congressional offices: It’s time to get serious about climate change!
President Trump is misleading Americans with false claims of stewardship of our environment in his speech today. By making our air and water dirtier, and our climate more dangerous, Trump is a disaster for America.
Our children will be living with the deadly consequences of an overheating planet for the rest of their lives — what we do, or don’t do, in the next five to ten years makes an enormous difference. Our members want to know what candidates’ climate plans will be in their first 100 days in office.
Bill Wehrum is stepping down as the head of air and radiation office of EPA. He is leaving amid an investigation into his possible violations of federal ethics rules. Wehrum has made a fortune as a high paid attorney representing oil and gas interests, coal interests and coal-based power companies.
Moms are climate voters. As we watch the debates, our members want to know that the climate crisis is a top line issue. We are listening for each candidate’s thoughtful commitment to tackling carbon and methane emissions. We want to know how each candidate plans to get us to a fossil-fuel free, 100% Clean Energy Economy by 2050.
Donald Trump and EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler are gutting a plan that would reduce carbon pollution, slow climate change, and protect our children’s health. If anything, the Clean Power Plan should be made stronger, not gutted with a replacement plan that does nothing to put us on the path to climate safety.
A new report by the Environmental Defense Fund details the major threats to public health and future generations from the Trump EPA attacks on the 2016 chemical safety law – the Lautenberg Act.
Parents should be able to trust that their government is protecting them from chemical risks in our homes and communities. We need a drastic change to EPA’s current direction on chemical safety. Without protection, our children and grandchildren, who are already paying the price of this travesty, will continue to be at risk for decades to come.
Read a Moms Clean Air Force interview with PA State Rep. Chris Rabb, who talks about clean energy, climate action, and citizen activism.
“Even more disturbing than its individual actions are the methodical steps the Trump EPA is taking to dismantle decades of progress in our country’s chemicals policies.”
Moms Clean Air Force is pushing national legislation that sets an ambitious but doable goal: 100% clean energy across the economy by 2050.
