Tell Your Senator:
Oppose Budget Cuts to the EPA
The White House has proposed cutting federal funding to the agency that enforces America’s clean air and clean water laws by more than 31 percent. Budgets reflect priorities, and based on this budget, big polluters and their bottom lines are the top priorities for this administration – and it represents an all-out assault on our health and environment.
Call your senator now and ask them to oppose the White House’s dirty budget. Type your phone number into the box below and you’ll receive a call from us. We’ll make sure you know what to say – specifically that you oppose any cuts to the EPA and programs dedicated to fighting the climate crisis – and then we’ll connect you to your senator.
Hi, my name is [CALLER'S NAME] and I’m calling from [TOWN/CITY].
I’m calling today to strongly urge Senator [Name] to oppose any budget cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency and funding for Department of Energy renewable energy research programs.
These cuts will significantly reduce the EPA’s ability to do its job of protecting the health and safety of American families and reduces funding to important renewable energy programs helping fight the climate crisis. We need a budget that prioritizes clean air to breathe and clean water to drink, not the profits of big polluters.
Please let the senator know this is a vitally important issue to me and many of [his/her] constituents.
Thank you for your time.
We need to act on Climate change
We can solve climate change
The overwhelming majority of the world’s climate scientists agree: man-made climate change is a reality. Unless we act now, temperatures will rise beyond our control.
We have the means
We know how to stop climate change, and we have the tools to do it. We start by ditching the dirty fossil fuels devastating our climate and our health and switching to clean, reliable, and affordable renewable energies like wind and solar.
There are real dangers
We're looking at a future of seas climbing up our shores; devastating floods, droughts, and storms becoming more frequent facts of life; seasons changing beyond recognition; and dangerous consequences for our health we’re only beginning to understand.
It makes economic sense
Changing technology means renewables keep getting cheaper, more accessible, and more widespread everywhere from rooftops to power plants. Renewable energy costs the same or less than energy from fossil fuels. In 2014, numerous countries' economies grew while their carbon emissions levels dropped.
It's our duty
We have a moral responsibility to each other and to our children to address this crisis. This is our one beautiful and deeply precious home.
we're doing it together
We’re bringing together people from all walks of life and corners of the earth to support a strong climate agreement in Paris that puts us on the path to zero carbon emissions and the healthy and prosperous future we want. When the world speaks with one voice, our leaders have to listen.
