President of the United States

Tell President Obama to Stop Being a Champion for Corporate Polluters

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

President Obama recently announced that he doesn’t plan on enforcing a law that would have prevented 12,000 deaths every year by protecting Americans from ozone pollution.

It is not too late. A swift and massive outcry from everyday Americans like you can convince the President to change his mind and choose the health of the people over the bottom line of the nation’s polluting industries.

Send the President a letter right now and let him know that you are holding him accountable for his decision not to enforce ozone pollution protections that would save 12,000 American lives.

      It is outrageous not to protect our health; and for you to stand with the disreputable Republican party on this issue, you are selling the welfare of the citizens of this country down the river. Do not play into the hands of corporate greed - do what the people elected you to do!

      Public health should be a priority, and breathing polluted air is the opposite of healthy (and not a sustainable practice over the long run). It's easier to stop adding more pollutants NOW than to try to clean our air up later, after we realize how many health problems polluted air causes.
