Tell the EPA: Fight climate change with cleaner cars

Skip to sign

Under President Barack Obama, we made significant progress fighting pollution and climate change. One big step was stronger fuel efficiency rules for cars and light trucks. After all, some 20% of all carbon emissions come from cars and trucks -- about 24 pounds of CO2 for every gallon of gas!

But under Donald Trump, the EPA and Department of Transportation are set to put us in reverse. Their plan? A total rollback of Obama-era fuel efficiency and emissions standards. It makes no sense. Fighting global climate change and pollution starts at home and starts with us. We can save people money at the pump and create jobs, but only if we fight to keep the Obama standards.


Interim EPA Administrator Wheeler and Secretary Chao:
Put our long-term health ahead of industry profits and special interests. Stop trying to roll back clean car standards!
