As our country burns

It is really hard to undo the damage we've done to our planet. The centuries of harmful pollution have left us with little time to save our home.

Twenty percent of all carbon emissions come from cars and light trucks. In an effort to combat global warming, the Obama administration enacted policies that call for better fuel efficiency and emission standards.

The Trump administration wants to reverse those standards and increase harmful auto emissions. Again. While California is experiencing yet another devastating wildfire season heightened by global warming.

It's time to tell him to lay off. For good. Sign our petition now!

For decades, California has demanded that automakers comply with standards and have fought for a cleaner future by cutting down on carbon pollution. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia – including Oregon – have followed these efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Rolling these standards back would cause billions in economic loss, worsen our air quality, cause a surge in health issues for friends and neighbors, and further warm our planet.

We must save California – and our planet – while we still have a chance. Sign my petition and tell Donald Trump to stop attacking our Clean Car Standards.

Thank you for fighting with me to save our planet,

Peter
