Tell American Electric Power: Stop Lobbying Against Life-Saving Pollution Standards

This petition had 77,872 supporters

American Electric Power (AEP) is often ranked the #1 offender in major air pollution categories -- that's not a distinction they should be proud of. And instead of cleaning up its act, AEP is spending tens of millions to lobby against your clean air standards.

Now they have gone even further. AEP wrote and is pushing an outrageous 56-page draft legislation that would gut life-saving clean air standards and lead to as many as 34,000 premature deaths in the first two years alone. That's one American dying from avoidable exposure to air pollution every 30 minutes!

The question for AEP and other polluting industries is simple: What's your number? How many lives are you willing to sacrifice with your assault on clean air standards?

Take action today. Email AEP and tell them to stop sacrificing the lives of Americans for their corporate profits.
