PA Senate, Don't Put a Climate Denier in Charge of the DEP

To be delivered to The Pennsylvania State Senate

Petition Statement

Chris Abruzzo was approved by the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee even though he admitted that he doesn't believe in climate change. When his nomination comes up for a full Senate vote, you must vote NO.
There are currently 10,534 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Our state senate is going to vote on Chris Abruzzo's nomination to head up the DEP as early as this week. Here's what he told the Environmental Resources and Energy committee when asked about climate change. "Abruzzo told the committee he does believe climate change is occurring and that it seems to be at least partially attributable to human factors, but he does not view it as harmful and sees no reason for Pennsylvania to adopt new policies to address it." And still the committee voted to approve him 10 - 1! Daylin Leach was the ONLY member of the committee to vote NO! Our senators need to know we don't want a climate denier heading up the DEP!
