Doctors, nurses, and public health officials agree: industrial carbon pollution threatens the health of Americans. Left unchecked, the resulting increase in smog will trigger more episodes of respiratory distress in children and seniors – and cause premature deaths.
That’s why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing standards that would limit industrial carbon pollution from power plants – and they'll be seeking public comments before taking final action.
These new clean air standards will improve the quality of our air and are a critical step to preventing catastrophic climate change. What’s more, these standards will help grow our economy by stimulating innovation in clean energy technologies – creating new jobs and industries here in America.
But the dirty air lobby is spending millions of dollars on TV ads, lawsuits, and political action to stop them. All while many fossil fuel companies are getting billions in government handouts and special tax loopholes.
Help stand up to the dirty air lobby and protect clean air. Please sign this letter to support EPA’s critical efforts and we’ll deliver it to the EPA.
