Trump's EPA nominee puts polluters first
- 6 ways Wheeler has shown he's a terrible pick for EPA

- It's not just Wheeler: EPA is increasingly dominated by people who have spent decades fighting to block environmental safeguards, undermining science, and lobbying for polluters.
Wheeler is a Washington insider with a keen understanding of politics. He continues the Trump administration’s assault on EPA while doing so more quietly and carefully than his predecessor.
Climate and air protections are under attack
Efforts to weaken critical health protections come with high costs in the form of more asthma attacks, more work and school days lost, and more premature death.
What’s at risk if EPA’s budget is slashed?
Deep cuts to EPA proposed by the Trump administration for the second year in a row would jeopardize Americans’ health and safety by reducing the funds that would address pollution including lead, toxic waste sites, contaminated water, and much more. The result will be more asthma attacks, more toxic pollution in our communities, and more dangerous chemicals in our drinking water.
Before the EPA and our bedrock environmental safeguards there was more smog in our cities, more pollution in our water and less assurance our families were protected.
