What's At Stake

Scott Pruitt might be out at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, but the fight to stop the Trump administration's all-out assault on our environment and health isn't over.

Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler could be just as—if not more—dangerous as Pruitt. A former coal industry lobbyist and Washington insider, he worked for polluters like Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray, who has been vocal about dismantling the climate-saving Clean Power Plan. Wheeler also served as legislative aide to the infamous climate denier Senator Jim Inhofe.

We’ll be watching Wheeler’s every move, and if he follows in Pruitt’s footsteps to put millions of Americans and the environment at risk, we’ll be there to stand up for our clean air and water, public lands, and clean energy future. No matter who’s running the EPA, President Trump will continue to put the interests of polluters ahead of public health and the environment—and NRDC will keep fighting back, in and out of court.
