Cuts to the EPA and Department of Energy programs
Hello, my name is ___________________ and I’m a constituent of Senator/Representative ___________________. My address is ______________________. I am calling to ask (him/her) to stand up for the EPA and renewable energy programs.
In the past week, we’ve seen tens of thousands of Americans stand up for science and the environment, but President Trump’s proposed budget ignores the threat of climate change and seeks to drastically reduce EPA funding by over 30%. This would slash funding for thousands of jobs and $100 million in funding for programs that fight climate change. In addition to crippling the EPA, the budget proposal takes funding from the Department of Energy’s renewable energy programs. This is disastrous economic policy as well, since renewable energy jobs are growing exponentially.
These cuts ignore the overwhelming scientific evidence that climate change is caused by humans and requires immediate action. I am urging Senator/Representative _________________ to side with hundreds of thousands of Americans by opposing any cuts to the EPA itself or to renewable energy programs within the Department of Energy. These cuts threaten American jobs, health, and the future of our planet.
I would appreciate a response from the Senator/Representative. Thank you.
