Hurricane Sandy was so big and so powerful that it damaged more than 40 National Wildlife Refuges--flooding crucial habitats of many coastal bird species, including endangered Atlantic Coast piping plovers, which depend upon the shorelines affected by Sandy for breeding habitat.
Scientists are warning that superstorms like Sandy could become more and more frequent as global temperatures continue to increase--and that we must reduce the pollution causing climate change now.
Right now, President Obama has the power to implement pollution limits and stop new coal fired power plants from spewing unlimited carbon pollution into our air.
Help protect crucial habitat for piping plovers by editing and sending a message to President Obama, urging him to implement limits on carbon pollution from coal-burning power plants.
