Trump is brazenly lying about the impact of slashing tailpipe emissions standards. Thread.
Trump’s attack on California wouldn’t just be detrimental to the state. Air pollution doesn’t stop at state lines, and any attempt to slash tailpipe emissions standards puts the entire country’s health in jeopardy.
Trump’s plan to uproot #CleanerCars would also cost consumers an additional $3,300 per vehicle, according to @CRadvocacy: advocacy.consumerreports.org/press_release/…

BREAKING: Our activists are on the Scioto River rebuking @Ford's work with Trump to roll back #CleanerCars standards. Steps away, Ford's CEO is giving a speech about the company's “innovative” vision. There's nothing innovative about increasing pollution and consumers' gas bills.
Public Citizen activist Oscar is LIVE on the Scioto River—outside Ford's speech on "innovation"—condemning the company's efforts to roll back #CleanerCars standards, the largest federal climate program in the country.

RT to spread his message and let @Ford know you're watching.
Looks like @Ford’s CEO noticed us.

Citing pressure from our activists, he just appeared to reverse the company's stance on the Trump administration’s proposed #CleanerCars rollback. Now we must hold him to it. bit.ly/FordChangesTune

By rolling back cleaner car standards, Trump is increasing our reliance on foreign oil—and as gas prices rise, so will the risks to our national security.

America’s military and intelligence leaders recognize that climate change threatens our troops and our national security. Why doesn't the Commander-in-Chief?

Rolling back #CleanerCars standards is far from the only black mark on Trump's climate record: he has consistently endangered our security by ignoring the risks associated with climate change. nationalsecurityaction.org/fuel

As a battle looms ahead, let’s take a look back at where we’ve been & why #CleanCarStandards are so important.

Once upon a time, CA’s fight for #cleanercars emerged from a thick layer of yellowish gray #smog with a metallic taste & eye-stinging character...
When Governor Ronald Reagan signed the law creating CARB in 1968, California had been fighting the #smog monster for over 20 years with regulations to clean up tailpipe pollution
Governor Reagan fought hard to protect CA’s authority to set its own #cleanercarstandards under the newly passed #CleanAirAct, signed by President Nixon a few years after LA’s #smog made the cover of Time Magazine

In response to the Trump administration's unconscionable #CleanerCars rollback, we’re outside EPA with a powerful visual representing the 25 million Americans who suffer from asthma. Trump shouldn’t be rolling back safeguards that protect them. Watch LIVE: facebook.com/publiccitizen/…
Trump’s dirty rollback of the #CleanerCars standards is brought to you by @Ford. That’s why we’re at Ford HQ — to condemn the company for conspiring to undo the largest federal climate program in the country. RT to tell Ford you’ll find another ride.
.@NHTSAgov is calling the #CleanerCars rollback the “S.A.F.E. Vehicles Rule.” There’s nothing safe about ramping up tailpipe pollution and exacerbating the climate crisis, so we’re outside their office demanding they scrap the new rule and put American families first.

BREAKING: @EPA and @NHTSAgov just issued a rule to roll back #CleanerCars standards — the largest federal climate program on the books.

The rollback will add 6B metric tons of pollution to the atmosphere and loot up to $90B from consumers at the gas pump. epa.gov/regulations-em…
The #CleanerCars rollback also revokes states’ legal authority under the Clean Air Act to set up more stringent tailpipe pollution standards — making today’s news the equivalent of an 100-car pile up. washingtonpost.com/national/healt…
Trump's #CleanerCars rollback puts his administration on a collision course with California and the supermajority of Americans who want more fuel efficient vehicles. They understand and demand the twin benefits of lower gasoline bills and reduced carbon pollution.
