White not fit for election

Kathleen Hartnett White is the latest in a string of Trump nominees singularly unsuited to head the agencies to which they have been appointed.

While chair of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, she declared carbon dioxide to be beneficial, betraying her lack of understanding of real-world issues with dire consequences. She has insulated herself from peer-reviewed scientific findings and thinks that conclusions reached by United Nations climate panels are “not validated and politically corrupt.”

We are facing issues too important to be ignored in favor of “business as usual.” The well-being of the entire planet, and of future generations, hinges on decisions made today. Please contact your U.S. senators to oppose this mistake of a nomination!
