Dirty Ford: Rally/Petition Delivery to Stop Clean Cars Rollback

Date: 
Tue, May 8, 2018 - 10:00am to 1:30pm

City:

Join consumer, environmental and health advocates for a rally and petition delivery in support of the clean car standards!

Organizers have collected more than a quarter million petition signatures calling on Ford to stop working with the Trump administration to roll back greenhouse gas emission and fuel economy standards that will cut more than 6 billion metric tons of climate pollution and save billions at the gas pump.

The event begins with an interactive "Dirty Ford" vehicle and press conference at 10AM, followed by a road trip and petition delivery at Ford's Headquarters.

Please join us to rally for clean air, climate action and consumer savings!

Background:
Despite helping craft the clean car standards, automakers have reversed course and lobbied the Trump administration to roll them back. Ford and other automakers have attacked the standards at every turn – recently using their trade association to publish regulatory comments to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that cast doubt on commonly accepted climate science and the link between air pollution and adverse health impacts. Ford can't claim to be a climate leader while its executives are meeting with administration officials about weakening clean car standards.

At the behest of Ford and other automakers, without any change in the facts, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt in April announced plans to roll back the clean car standards, ignoring the thousands of pages of research and analysis that support keeping the standards.
