|First it was the Paris agreement. Then the Clean Power Plan.
Now the Trump administration has its sights set on dismantling
yet another crucial climate policy: fuel-efficiency and tailpipe-
pollution standards for cars and light trucks.
Fossil-fuel vehicles are the nation’s largest source of greenhouse
gases, and clean car standards are our best tool to fight climate
change yet. We’ve been fighting for years to stay on the right

Tell the EPA it must strengthen, not weaken clean car standards.
This reckless proposal would lock us into decades of toxic,
planet-warming emissions. An additional 2.2 billion tons
of carbon dioxide would be pumped into the air by 2040,

And that’s not all. The Trump administration also wants
to strip California of its ability to set stricter standards,
which are currently followed by 12 other states and D.C.
And the president’s bizarre claim that people driving
dirty vehicles are safer and drive less is just wrong.
America’s cars are more fuel-efficient and safer every year.
Take action now. Insist that the EPA withdraw this damaging
