Tell American Electric Power: Stop Lobbying Against Life-Saving Pollution Standards

    1. Sponsored by

      Environmental Defense Action Fund

American Electric Power (AEP) is often ranked the #1 offender in major air pollution categories -- that's not a distinction they should be proud of. And instead of cleaning up its act, AEP is spending tens of millions to lobby against your clean air standards.

Now they have gone even further. AEP wrote and is pushing an outrageous 56-page draft legislation that would gut life-saving clean air standards and lead to as many as 34,000 premature deaths in the first two years alone. That's one American dying from avoidable exposure to air pollution every 30 minutes!

The question for AEP and other polluting industries is simple: What's your number? How many lives are you willing to sacrifice with your assault on clean air standards?

Take action today. Email AEP and tell them to stop sacrificing the lives of Americans for their corporate profits.

      You know, I could see the electric company trying to cut corners......if they weren't making so much money already! I go broke every month paying my bill. Add that up with the wholle city population........they can afford it, not only that, but that's part of the responsibility of your product, clean it up

      Denying the causes today (or hidding some facts) the EAP can be responsible on the future for the damages to environment and to the people.

      AEP is a shameful company.

      I want the AEP to stop spending money on lobbying and spend it on cleaning up air pollution.

      Do it cause "It's the right thing to do!"

      I believe that protecting the environment is more important than any company profits. I believe that air polluters need to be prosecuted for endangering the lives of others, and I believe AEP should be ashamed at the amount of air pollution it produces. The CEOs at AEP need to realize that the air they breathe is the same air the rest of the United States and world breathes, and not only are they choosing to endanger the lives of every other person in the world, but they are also endangering their own lives.
