Doctors, nurses, and public health officials agree: industrial carbon pollution fuels global warming, which threatens our health through dirtier air. Left unchecked, the deterioration of air quality triggers asthma attacks in children and seniors – and causes irreversible lung damage.
That’s why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing limits on industrial carbon pollution from new power plants – and they’re seeking public comments before deciding to take action.
These new clean air standards would help protect public health and be a critical first step to preventing catastrophic global warming. What’s more, these standards would help grow our economy by creating new jobs and industries in clean technologies.
But big corporate polluters are spending millions on TV ads, lawsuits, and lobbyists to stop them-- while getting billions in government handouts and special tax loopholes.
Stand up to corporate polluters and protect clean air by submitting a comment to the EPA.
