Rick Perry is Donald Trump’s pick to head the Department of Energy, an agency he famously forgot he wanted to eliminate, and one that is responsible for safeguarding our nuclear arsenal. He opposed federal incentives to expand alternative energy, supported drilling on public lands, and said that he did not believe in manmade climate change.
Big Oil has bankrolled Rick Perry – giving him $13 million over the course of his career – and he returned the favor by supporting the expansion of dirty energy that pollutes our air and water and fighting environmental protections. He sat on the board of Energy Transfer Partners, the company that is fighting to build the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The Senate is responsible for considering and voting on Donald Trump's nominations. Take action now by asking your Senators to defeat Perry's nomination.
