No Climate Deniers In The Cabinet

Trump recklessly signed executive orders to green light the climate-threatening, water-poisoning Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and seeks Senate confirmation for avowed climate deniers to serve in his cabinet. This is unacceptable! 

As Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) friend Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) said:

The dangers of oil pipelines like The Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipeline are clear and deeply alarming. Just weeks ago, a leak in the Belle Fourche Pipeline spilled 176,000 gallons of crude oil into a North Dakota creek. True Companies, Inc., the parent company of Belle Fourche, has also reported an additional 36 spills totaling 320,000 gallons of petroleum products in Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota since 2006. 
This is alarmingly common with oil pipelines across the country. The responsibility we have to protect our precious water is great, and cannot be taken lightly. Without water, there is no life, there are no jobs, there is no future.

Sign the petition: Tell Your Senators Do Not Confirm Climate Deniers!
