Statement of Professional Environmental Sociologists on Trump Nominations & Policies

(If you would like to be added to the list of signatures, please send your request via email to envirosocstatement@hotmail.com)

As professional environmental sociologists who have dedicated our careers to the study of the interaction of social systems with ecosystems, we condemn President Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the reality of anthropogenic climate change, and his nomination of a series of climate-denying anti-environmentalists to key cabinet positions. Society is at a crucial tipping point in its relationship with the natural systems upon which it depends for survival. The adverse impacts of climate change disproportionately burden the poor, people of color, and societies of the Global South. Furthermore, as one of the largest contributors of global warming gases in the world, the United States has a moral and ethical obligation to the world to lead in environmental protection. We find the stated positions and the historical actions of Donald Trump and his nominees for Secretary of State, Secretary of the Interior, Secretary of Energy, Secretary of Agriculture, and Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to be detrimental to the planet and people. These positions and actions clearly indicate that these individuals are unprepared to lead us through the environmental challenges we face as a nation and as a species.

We are particularly concerned by President Trump’s nomination of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As Oklahoma Attorney General, Scott Pruitt demonstrated time and again that his commitment to the fossil fuels industry is far greater than any commitment to efforts to protect public health, safety, and the environment. Beyond his record of repeatedly trying to stop or rollback important environmental protections, Pruitt is a climate change denier. Anyone who rejects the scientific consensus supporting climate action should be precluded from running the EPA–an agency charged with developing science-based and evidence-based protections for our health and environment. Congress has charged the EPA with the task of protecting our nation’s air and water for the benefit of our families and future generations. Scott Pruitt provides ample evidence that he is unfit to fulfill the EPA’s fundamental lifesaving mission.

We also strongly oppose President Trump’s nomination of Governor Rick Perry to head the very same agency he stated he would like to abolish, namely the Department of Energy. This choice will set our nation and our national security back decades from what should be our shared goal to move away from fossil fuels and invest in renewables and clean energy. With Perry, the Department of Energy would be moving from Secretary Ernest Moniz, a nuclear physicist, to someone who rejects the scientific consensus on climate change and has no direct experience with nuclear research or energy.

We further oppose the nomination of Ryan Zinke as Secretary of the Interior. We believe that as a cabinet member entrusted to administer our nation’s public lands, Rep. Zinke would cater to corporate interests over the interests of the public. Zinke also denies the science demonstrating that climate change is caused by human activity, and supports continuing subsidies for fossil fuel energy development on public lands. Those positions are inconsistent with sound stewardship of our public lands, but they align with interests of the fossil fuel industry, which has contributed $340,000 to Zinke’s campaigns.

We are also concerned with and oppose the nomination of Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue as Secretary of Agriculture. This is an integral agency in the fight against climate change given that the food system is a major contributor to greenhouse gases and environmental pollution. Yet, Perdue has historically disregarded climate change and other relevant issues such as water pollution. Instead of taking steps as governor to deal with the impacts of drought to reduce climate warming gases from the agricultural sector, he held a prayer service for rain. Not only do we oppose Perdue on the grounds that he is a climate change denier, but also on the grounds that he advances corporate industrial agriculture interests that perpetuate human and animal exploitation and environmental degradation.

Finally, we oppose the nomination of Rex Tillerson, recent CEO of ExxonMobil, as Secretary of State. ExxonMobil has a decades-long record of funding climate denial organizations in order to create the illusion that scientific consensus on climate change has not been reached and is under investigation for deceiving the public about climate change despite its awareness as early as the 1970s. Those actions have had devastating consequences for people in every nation on earth, and for generations to come. ExxonMobil not only deliberately concealed its knowledge of climate change for decades but is also responsible for the 1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, one of the costliest environmental disasters in history. At a moment when the climate crisis is deepening, the United States should not appoint one of the planet’s top fossil fuel oligarchs to run U.S. foreign policy.

It is our assessment that, collectively, the nominations noted above constitute an existential threat to the health and well-being of the planet, and to all human and non-human life on it. The consequences of disabling the EPA, an energy and agricultural policy that ignores climate change, managing public lands in a manner that prioritizes resource extraction for private profit, and a foreign policy aimed at pursuing the interests of the fossil fuel industry will have irrecoverable negative consequences on the citizens of the United States, the integrity of the biosphere, and the possibilities for peace and prosperity globally.
