Toyota, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler announced recently that they would side with the Trump administration’s efforts to gut the Clean Car Standards AND revoke the authority of California and other states to set clean vehicle standards.
This is a terrible step in the wrong direction by these automakers. By siding with the Trump administration against building cleaner cars, Toyota, GM, Fiat Chrysler, and several other automakers have turned their backs on one of the easiest and quickest ways to address climate change and protect public health.
We must reduce carbon pollution from automobiles – the transportation sector is the largest domestic source of global warming pollution in the U.S. and a major contributor to smog. The clean cars rollback is an immoral decision to put profits and politics over people and the health of our planet.
Let us make clear to Toyota, GM and Fiat Chrysler that we know what they’ve done and people of faith and conscience will not accept this immoral and indefensible move that harms our climate, people’s health, and all of Creation.
Sign our petition calling for them to reconsider and fund engineers to develop innovative fuel-efficient vehicles rather than lawyers to fight against clean car standards.
