Reject Ignoramuses & Industry Shills for the EPA

(Ignoramus is the title of a farce by George Ruggle (1575-1622) that was first produced in 1615. The title character, whose name in Latin literally means “we do not know,” is a lawyer who fancies himself to be quite shrewd but is actually foolish and ignorant.)

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to urge Sen. [___] vote NO on the latest unqualified nominees for important positions involving environmental policy, including Kathleen Hartnett-White, Andrew Wheeler, William Wehrum, Michael Dourson and Barry Myers.

More script if you want it: These nominees cannot be trusted to protect public health and the environment. Additionally they will not commit to uphold California’s Green House Gas Waiver.

CALL Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430

AND Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884
