For the Planet: Stop Trump’s anti-environment Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

It will be a dark day for the environment if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh has spent his career ruling in favor of corporate profits over the planet and he will assuredly support Trump’s crusade to strike down laws that protect your right to a livable environment.

This is why we must stop the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

In his 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Kavanaugh regularly voted to suppress EPA regulation of corporate pollution. During the Obama administration, he ruled in three major cases concerning the EPA’s authority under the Clean Air Act and voted against the EPA every time. In 2017, he wrote the majority opinion in a case striking down EPA regulation of hydrofluorocarbons, a potent greenhouse gas.

The thought of a Supreme Court justice like Kavanaugh at a time like now is madness. Heat waves and wildfires are raging around the world. The National Academy of Sciences is predicting Earth could soon tip into a “hothouse” state with sea-level rise of 30 to 200 feet within decades. Rational climate observers are warning that “it’s time to start panicking.”

And yet there is Kavanaugh, ruling against efforts to slow climate change.

We need action to save our planet. We don’t need an extreme conservative judge like Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, working in the best interests of corporations and against our future.

Please join us in opposing the confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Sign our petition urging the Senate to reject Brett Kavanaugh and share our video so others can take key actions to #StopKavanaugh now.

  1. Seems like just this winter a congressman tossed a snowball in the air and said something about whats this about global warming. Today we have smoke from wildfires blocking the skies across the nation. We have wildfires raging not only across the western US but also in Sweden. And yet we are watch the hard earned regulations to save our environment being torn apart to make more money for business. Kavenaugh has demonstrated that he works for business and not for the health of the nation. He does not review the arguments before him for what is right.

  2. Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

    Thank you,

  3. He’s about corporations, profits, religious far right dogma. Two generations under his thumb. Only 51 votes in the Senate; not what it should be if you don’t want a partisan judge.

  4. Our clean air is essential to the health of the entire world. We need to depend on sustainable energy sources or wind up killing millions of humans and wildlife. There is nothing more important than this.

  5. I oppose the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh. A Supreme Court Justice is supposed to hold Congress and the President accountable, and act on the best interests of the people within the Constitution. Brett Kavanaugh does None of them!

  6. I oppose his confirmation. We need to preserve and protect our life, health and state of mind- We need to be at peace -This guy will not bring peace-Just more division.

  7. Outright unacceptable and most are keen enough to know this but may well vote for him anyway doing disservice to their constituents and the world, humans aren’t the sole players in this ecosystem
