|Set the Senate’s priorities right:Tell Senator Tillis to stand up for people, not polluters!|
Kids in North Carolina don’t deserve a future with smog, carbon, mercury, and all the dangerous pollution that comes when reckless industries can run amok. That’s why it’s so disappointing that some U.S. senators — like Senator Tillis — keep choosing to side with the polluters who take in record profits at the expense of our communities, our health, and our climate.
When big polluters started pushing their agenda into the Senate’s budget resolution, Senator Tillis stood with them — and put polluter profits ahead of public health.
This was the first big environmental fight of the new Senate, and Senator Tillis let down the families of North Carolina when he voted:
– Against increasing renewable energy to fight climate change
– For an attack on the new Clean Power Plan
– Against the simple statement that climate change is real and that Congress needs to act
– Against protecting climate science from censorship
The Senate’s budget is a preview of the fights to come. The fossil fuel billionaires who bankrolled last year’s elections think that Americans voted for their agenda — for hazy skies and polluted water, scorching summers, droughts, and asthma attacks. But they’re wrong and it’s up to you to make sure Senator Tillis gets the message. Send your message now!
Thank you for all you do for the environment,
