Tell Congress: Don't Gut the Clean Air Act

    1. Sponsored by

      Environmental Defense Action Fund

There is nothing more fundamental to human health than breathing clean air.

But now, after four decades of bipartisan action to ensure we have safe and health air, the Clean Air Act is under attack.

Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) has introduced a bill that would permanently block the EPA and every other federal agency from using the Clean Air Act -- or any other environmental law -- to do anything about reducing America's climate pollution.

This is part of a broad, coordinated pro-polluter legislative assault to weaken America's clean air standards and block climate action.

You can help stop this assault on clean air before it starts.

Join the Environmental Defense Action Fund's campaign to Clear the Air and demand Congress reject the "Do Absolutely Nothing on Climate" Barrasso bill -- and all other similar legislative assaults.

      Clear air? Who needs it. Clean water? Totally overrated. Protected wilderness? For wimps.
      This seems to be the message the GOP is sending this week, as they added amendments to the government's spending bill that would end environmental protections...

      We need clean air in Fairbanks but we don't have it. Please keep funding for EPA enforcement and standards development. Children in Fairbanks breathe wood and coal smoke inside schools and on playgrounds. These budget cuts are really cutting the future for our children. Thank you.

      We can make the air clean and the country functionable. Stop funding the world's defense because the enemies are illusions. They are created as a vision of poverty expressed as a lack of education, as greed, as an oligarchy that is parasitic; and in the wisdom of Eisenhower it is a parasite named the "Military Industrial Complex.
