Read the full message from CPR Initiative Board President Donn J. Viviani

Dear Friends:

Three years ago, Dan Galpern—our founder, Executive Director and General Counsel—recruited me to the Board of Directors of CPR Initiative. Even in this short time, our planet has inched ever closer to catastrophe. And so we have pressed hard to develop a politically and legally viable path forward to restore and protect the climate to secure our children’s future. 

On this Giving Tuesday, I want to urge you to join me in providing CPR Initiative with your most generous (and tax-deductible) donation. Why now? Why us? Most critically, because we have just sued EPA, igniting a legal battle ultimately to "save the world."

My time as CPR Initiative Board President follows my 35-year career as a scientist at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). During that span, I served, among other things, as director of the Agency’s Climate Policy Assessment Division in the Office of the Administrator.

Our lawsuit seeks to compel EPA to use the most powerful tool Congress devised for protecting ourselves and the environment—namely, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The statute aptly fits the need to broadly address the root cause of dangerous climate change and ocean acidification.

TSCA is a chemical safety act. Greenhouse gases and fossil fuels at current levels and concentrations are the most unsafe chemicals humankind and the environment have ever faced.

In my view, if we can raise sufficient resources to fully prosecute this case, then CPR Initiative v EPA may turn out to be the most important climate and environmental lawsuit. Ever.

I want to help!

Yours with high hope for a New Year characterized by aggressive US climate action,
Donn J. Viviani
