Save EPA – A new ‘toon is up in the adventures of Slick Scotty

And now a word from Slick Scotty's sponsors...We welcome volunteers!

Thank you for your interest in Save EPA.  As you've seen, we create tools & talking points to help you speak out in defense of our environmental protections.  The Trump Administration continues to launch a massive assault on our climate, our public health and our environment, and new challenges come every day.   We hope you've been able to use the tools we've sent you. 

We have a small central group so far, but we could sure use help to make a bigger difference.  Would you like to take that next step with us? 

We need people to help us at all levels - from making phone calls to your Congressional representative, to writing a blog post or letter to a newspaper, to analyzing a rule rollback in your area of expertise, to speaking with a reporter or neighborhood group, to website maintenance, and even even more.  There are ways to help even if you have very little time to spare. 

If you're interested in learning more, fill out this survey and let us know what you know and what you'd like to do. 

The survey was designed for former EPA employees, so don't worry if you can't check the "areas of expertise" - there will still be ways to help.  We'll be back in touch with you soon.

Thank you for your support of our work - and for your resistance!

The (small but mighty) Save EPA Team

Save EPA has been an all-volunteer group of former EPA officials who became alarmed about the Trump agenda for EPA and joined together to fight it.

With newly-elected President-Elect Biden and VP-Elect Harris coming in January, the need to "save EPA" is much less urgent. This is not to imply all clear skies ahead - there is much re-building to do, there will be negative pressures on the new administration, and we will likely have policy differences in the future. However, we are hopeful that these differences will be discussed rationally, using science as a basis for moving forward, and keeping EPA's mission of protecting human health and the environment in the forefront.

And so, we are going back to retirement!  We're keeping our website up at , as a resource for those who want to follow and influence the restoration work. Our report on the Trump record at EPA describes the actions that need to be reversed [], and our guide to participating in the rulemaking process [] can help you be part of the solution.

Thank you for your support and commitment during the past 3.5 years.  While the Trump assaults were unending, they were also frequently unsuccessful, and that was due in large part to public outrage.  Keep it up!  Although EPA will be in much better hands with a Biden administration, there is always a need for an informed and engaged public.
