We need your help. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed to censor the science it uses in its decisions—and ignore research that shows that air pollution harms health. Learn more here.
The likely result: weak limits on air pollution that fail to reflect the science and fail to protect health.
Sign the petition to tell the Trump Administration "NO" to censoring science.
There are two versions of the petition: one for everyone and one specifically for health professionals. Please select a version below.
I call on EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler to withdraw EPA's proposals to censor science. EPA already relies on established, transparent science to make its decisions. The proposals will not improve this process. Instead, they would allow the agency to brush aside critical health studies that show the health impacts of air pollutants, especially the studies that polluters do not like.
My family depends on EPA following the science to protect our health. If EPA ignores critical health studies on the impacts of air pollution, we will not have safe air to breathe.
I call on EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler to withdraw EPA's proposals to censor science. As a health professional, I understand the harms that air pollution has on patients and communities. These effects are documented by research that has already undergone a long-established, transparent review process.
Many of these studies contain confidential patient information that can't and shouldn't be made public. This is no reason to exclude those studies' critically important, well-vetted findings.
I am deeply concerned that EPA's proposals would allow the agency to censor these important health studies. Please withdraw the EPA's proposals.
