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