“The message they’re sending, particularly to young people, is that science
doesn’t matter.”

- Christine Todd Whitman, Former EPA chief under President George W. Bush

Two years ago, in the spring of 2017, the US Environmental Protection
Agency erased the words “climate change” widely across its website. Led by
a longtime friend of fossil fuels, EPA’s goal was clear: Hide the climate
crisis from us so the oil, coal, and gas companies most responsible for it
could keep making billions.

But making the words vanish didn’t make the crisis disappear. Temperatures
kept rising. Hurricanes Irma, Maria, and Harvey inflicted billions in
damage. Wildfires in California devoured thousands of homes and tragically
took over 100 lives.

We don’t hide from challenges. We've got to face these challenges head on.
Together as a nation. We face them. Head-on. And that starts with looking
reality straight in the face.

Now it’s time for EPA to stop trying to hide the truth of how our climate
is changing. How Big Polluters are behind this crisis. And how we can solve
it with a just transition to clean energy.

It’s time to tell EPA: Stop trying to hide the truth. Put the facts about
climate change front and center on EPA.gov <http://epa.gov/> now.

Our Message to The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency:

Seven out of 10 Americans know our climate is changing and want our
government to act. We want to power our country with clean energy – not
dirty fossil fuels. And we’re everywhere from rural Red State towns to big
Blue State cities.

As the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, you have a
responsibility to protect human and environmental health. And that means
not hiding the truth about the climate crisis.

In 2017, EPA removed the climate change page and erased climate-related
resources across its site. I demand that you stop censoring science on
EPA’s site and provide Americans with the information we need to act on the
climate crisis.
