Stand Up Against the Dangerous Eco-Effects of the Shutdown

This petition had 34,122 supporters

For the first time in 17 years, the United States government has shutdown—and our environment is facing the consequences.

While polluters keep polluting, EPA staffers are unable to work, and clean air and water programs are in danger. Even the EPA's recent proposal to limit carbon pollution from new power plants—which would be America's first-ever national limits on climate pollution—could face unknown delays. Don't let our world suffer the consequences of the government shutdown. Tell Congress to get the government back to work.
