Industrial carbon pollution spewing from power plants threatens our health. Doctors, nurses, scientists and other experts agree that carbon pollution fuels global warming which increases smog, making it harder for children to breathe, and contributes to thousands of asthma attacks, permanent lung damage and other illnesses.
Thankfully, the Environmental Protection Agency is proposing the first ever national safeguards to protect Americans from industrial carbon pollution from new power plants – and you can make sure the new standards provide strong protection by affirming your support!
Standards to limit carbon pollution are critical to protecting the health of our kids and families. These standards are also a key step forward in the battle to prevent catastrophic global warming. And new standards to set limits on industrial carbon pollution will spark innovation in clean technologies and create green jobs here in America.
But big power companies and their lobbyists are spending millions of dollars to try to block these new standards. They are putting their bottom lines before your health.
We need your help to make sure the EPA protects our health by holding polluters accountable for their carbon pollution. Please submit a public comment and we’ll deliver it to the EPA!
I also urge the EPA to move forward with carbon pollution standards for existing plants. Setting standards to limit carbon pollution is critical to protecting Americans’ health, spurring investment in clean energy and unleashing American innovation.
