Brett Kavanaugh is pro-industry, anti-regulation and profoundly dangerous. His lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court would facilitate Trump’s decimation of environmental protections. It would also virtually ensure a level of environmental damage that will last well beyond all of our lifetimes.
While on the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C, he has consistently sided with the interests of industry pollutersover the lives and health of people and the environment, arguing in various cases:
For the right of a coal company to continue poisonous mountaintop-removal mining
For eliminating the rule limiting air pollution that crosses state lines
Against an EPA regulation phasing out hydrofluorocarbons, a greenhouse gas
Against the EPA’s authority to regulate the dumping of chemical waste
That environmental groups have no standing to challenge insufficient environmental regulation
That industrial groups do have standing to oppose environmental standards—supporting logging companies who challenged the protection of critical owl habitats in three western states, including Oregon.
He’s argued against the authority of states, like Oregon, to protect our own land and people with pollution regulations higher than weak federal standards.
Tell our Senators that Kavanaugh’s record on environmental issues makes blocking this appointment imperative.
