Adam Smith: No Lame Duck Dirty Deal!

Stop Fossil Fuel Projects

Our Revolution - America’s largest grassroots progressive organization - will mobilize our national network of millions of members and hundreds of local chapters and our progressive allies on Capitol Hill to stop a deal negotiated between Senator Joe Manchin, The American Petroleum Institute (API), and Democratic leadership to fast track permitting of fossil fuel extraction projects, leading to potential catastrophic climate impacts.

The inclusion of these provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), or any other must-pass legislation, would silence the voices of frontline and environmental justice communities by protecting this API wish-list from scrutiny. These provisions will weaken the National Environmental Policy Act, place public health in even greater jeopardy, and restrict the ability of impacted communities to seek redress and justice through the courts. Additionally, it would effectively zero out any benefits included in the IRA, only two months after leadership in Congress and the administration have been touting it as the ‘largest investment ever’ in combating the climate crisis.

CALL Adam Smith NOW!

Suggested Script:

Hi, my name is ____, & I’m from ____. As your constituent, I’m calling to demand that you do all you can to block Senator Manchin’s “permitting reform” proposal from being included in the NDAA.  Protecting our communities and climate is more important than giving another gift to the fossil fuel industry. Stand with the communities impacted by fossil fuels and the climate crisis and stop the dirty deal!
