Ignoring experts and covering up evidence of climate change
Trump has denied climate change and called it a “hoax,” even though 97% of climate scientists, NASA, and the Department of Defense agree that it’s a real threat.
But he’s not just ignoring experts: he’s firing scientists and putting oil and gas lobbyists in charge of our environment.
Meanwhile, our communities are experiencing the increasing damage of climate change, like hurricanes, flooding, and wildfires—and that’s not a hoax to us.
Letting corporate polluters dump chemicals into our water
His administration has loosened and even eliminated rules that stop corporate polluters from letting chemicals like PFAS, lead, pesticides, and other carcinogens into our water supply — which can cause health risks like cancer and brain damage in children.
Refusing to protect clean air from pollution
Trump likes to say we have the “cleanest air,” but data show that air pollution is getting worse after years of improvement.
He’s tried to gut environmental programs that protect our air from pollution, which can cause higher rates of asthma, heart, and lung disease and even cancer.
