Tell Congress: Protect The Air We Breathe

    1. Sponsored by

      The American Lung Association

Your right to breathe clean and healthy air is under attack.

Big corporate polluters are pressuring Congress to weaken the Clean Air Act – a law that prevents tens of thousands of asthma attacks, heart attacks, strokes and premature deaths caused by air pollution each year.

The House of Representatives responded by passing a series of bills designed to block the cleanup of mercury and other toxics from power plants and industrial facilities, to block safeguards that protect people from out-of-state pollution, and to put economists in charge of updating pollution standards instead of health scientists. 

American’s can’t take a break from breathing and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shouldn’t take a break from protecting our air.

Take action today. Tell Congress to protect the air we breathe by opposing any effort to weaken clean air protections or to impede the EPA's ability to update air pollution standards.

      This is very wrong. I live in a city that gets something called an "inversion" in the winter. That means that the air above the clouds is warmer than the air below. This creates and circular motion in the air and will not allow the city's pollution to get out of the city. The only sign of relief is high winds or a story to clean the air. We have these factory;s that im sure help "People" Get into office so a blind eye is turned so to speak. Dont let this happen to your city. We need to stop this now!!!

      I also have a petition out. please take a look at it and sign it.

      I'm just trying to spread the message about changing the Utah liquor laws. We should be able to by liquor in grocery stores, but the government has been controlling these laws and hurting business's of Utah for long enough. Please help by letting Utah know that adults should be able to make their own decisions. Thanks for your time

      To sacrifice a world and the life on it for the profit of a few is criminal. Anyone who attempts to do this should be tried and executed for crimes against humanity.

      Again, sadly, clean air for the majority is betrayed for the sake of financial gain for a few. This is WRONG!!
