Goal: 25,000 Progress: 356
Sponsored by: Environmental Defense Fund

For years, America's cars have been speeding towards a safer, healthier, cleaner future — but now, the Trump Administration is slamming on the brakes. The Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation are now "reevaluating" clean cars standards that have been exhaustingly proven to be achievable, economically beneficial, and extremely effective.

If we allow these standards to be weakened or removed, we're not just further forfeiting our leadership on climate — we are firmly placing America's automotive industry behind the rest of the world.

Take action today and prove to the Trump Administration, the auto industry, and the world that Americans won't stand idly by while our protections are stripped away.

Dear Administrator Pruitt,

I am writing today in strong opposition to the EPA and DOT's reconsideration of greenhouse gas pollution standards for cars and passenger trucks for model years 2022 to 2025. Weakening or revoking these Clean Cars Standards will create uncertainty, slow innovation, and hurt U.S. economic leadership.

These standards strengthen U.S. energy security, save families money at the gas pump, and keep American car manufacturers and workers competitive. They ensure that people who buy a new car or truck in 2025 would, in total, save more than $1 trillion in fuel costs. They would reduce America's oil consumption by two million barrels per day by 2025 — more than we import from any single country other than Canada. And it would eliminate more than a year's worth of U.S. carbon emissions over the life of the program.

Auto manufacturers and suppliers are already developing and deploying fuel efficient technologies at a much faster rate, and at a much lower cost, than was forecast in 2012. In fact, as a whole, the auto industry has exceeded the Clean Cars Standards in each of the last four years.

Americans deserve a healthier, safer, and cleaner future. These standards put us well on that path. Do not throw them into reverse.
