Today’s Action: Tell your state to adopt California’s climate standards

“You can’t get serious about climate change unless you get serious about vehicle emissions.”

So said California Governor Gavin Newsom about Trump’s latest attack against climate change efforts, when Trump stripped California’s waiver for the ability to set our country’s strongest statewide auto-emission standards above and beyond federal levels.

Californians buy more cars than any other state in the nation, meaning many automakers adopt their standards, making it vital that they implement strong clean air policies. But Trump’s motivations are clear: big oil is making a fuss about climate change policy and Trump will do everything in his power to make them happy.

Call or email your Governor and tell them to adopt California’s standards for vehicle emissions, as a strong statement against Trump’s attempt to roll them back. And if you live in one of the 13 states that has already matched California’s standards, thank your Governor and urge them to stand firm against Trump’s sabotage.

More than 20 percent of U.S. greenhouse emissions come from vehicle usage. Which makes California’s standards (and the national standard, which followed suit) of an average fuel economy of 54.6 miles per gallon by 2025 so necessary. Trump, on the other hand, wants to roll this back to 37 miles per gallon…literally an attempt to force us all to pay more for fuel and pollute the air in the process to pay his billionaire friends.

California has vowed to fight back, and has been joined by nearly two dozen other states in the lawsuit. As consumers and voters, we can’t help with the lawsuit… but we can help with urging our governors to match California’s emission standards, making clear to Trump that he’s not just facing off against a handful of states but an entire nation of voters.

Email or call your Governor and demand they bring your state to California emission standards, to fight Trump’s big oil efforts. And if your state has already adopted this standard, urge your Governor to stand firm and fight Trump’s attempt to roll it back.
