Protect The Clean Power Plan!

This petition had 602 supporters

Climate change is the biggest issue of our time, and it's only getting worse as time progresses. Storms are becoming deadlier, ice is melting at an alarming rate, wildfires are burning our cities to the ground. Polar bears are on the verge of extinction, and our coral reefs are practically deceased. I don't want my children to grow up in a world enveloped in air pollution and without the animals that I was able to experience in real life as a child. 

The warming of Earth's surface and ocean is a direct result of greenhouse gas emissions, most of which are directly emitted from human activity. Humans emit greenhouse gases by burning fossil fuels (coal, oil) for our electricity, transportation, power plants, and more. 

The Clean Power Plan is a policy that could help regulate and lower carbon emissions from industrial uses of fossil fuels. The Clean Power Plan was said to be "one of the strongest actions ever taken by the United States to combat global warming." This plan also encourages renewable energy and alternative ways to receive energy. This plan would help our air become cleaner and help combat global warming. Now that the United States is under a new administration, the Clean Power Plan is under review and could perhaps be expunged entirely. 

Please sign the petition if you care about our environment. It is important to our quality of life and well-being that our environment is as healthy as it could possibly be, not only for humans but for every animal and species that inhabit the planet with us. Please help take action to save our planet.
