Tell Your Senator: Oppose Trump’s Anti-Ocean Cabinet Nominees

DolphinPresident-elect Trump’s administration is poised to be filled with anti-ocean, climate change deniers, if we don’t speak up.

Together, we won unprecedented protections for our oceans under President Obama. But now our progress is at risk. New, dangerous offshore drilling could come to the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans, putting at-risk marine life and the very health of our oceans in jeopardy. Milestone ocean-protecting laws and regulations could be dismantled before our very eyes.

Trump’s cabinet nominees are a who’s who of fossil fuel proponents: Former Exxon-Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, former Texas Governor Rick Perry as Secretary of Energy, Scott Pruitt as EPA Administrator, and Ryan Zinke as Secretary of the Interior.

Tell your senator to oppose President-elect Trump’s anti-ocean cabinet nominees, before we pay the price. If enough of us speak up now, we can stop this assault on our oceans and marine life. Do not approve Tillerson, Perry, Pruitt and Zinke to Trump’s Cabinet!
