The Obama administration has proposed a critical plan to limit the carbon pollution from new and existing power plants that fuels global warming. Currently, we limit how much mercury, arsenic, soot and other pollutants power plants dump into our air. But if the Koch brothers, the coal industry and congressional climate change deniers have their way, polluters will continue to have free rein to dump unlimited amounts of harmful carbon pollution into our air.
That’s why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed the Clean Power Plan, the first-ever commonsense carbon limits for power plants. But lobbyists, corporate polluters and Washington insiders are working tirelessly to stop this progress in its tracks.
The comment period for the Clean Power Plan just ended on December 1, so now it’s time to make sure that Congress doesn’t try to block the EPA’s ability to move forward. Don’t miss the chance to help make a huge impact on the fight for our planet’s future -- fill out your information here to tell your members of Congress that you support the EPA’s critical climate change action now.
These new clean air standards will protect public health, fight climate change, and create jobs. We cannot afford to weaken or delay the implementation of this critical step in stopping dangerous climate change.
It is our obligation to protect our children and future generations from the devastating impacts of climate change -- and that means moving forward with these clean air protections now. As your constituent, I urge you to support the EPA and their Clean Power Plan.
