Leave comments for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head Scott Pruitt on what he should do–namely, leave environmental protections in place, thank you very much.
Until May 15, the EPA is accepting comments through its web site on “on regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification.”
Please go to the site and make it clear that you want the EPA to do its best to, you know, protect the environment and keep our air and water clean.
To this end you may want to ask the EPA to restore legislation that prevented hunters from using lead ammunition in national parks and on public lands.
You may want to ask the EPA to keep the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), or even make them stricter.
You may want to ask that regulations protecting the environment be stricter, and punishments for polluters be harsher.
And you might also want to voice your support for policies that recognize that climate change is happening, humans are causing it, and humans can use the EPA to help fight it.
Just a few suggestions.
Remember: These are public comments, and they will be viewable by all. Please compose your thoughts accordingly.
