President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have proposed a first-ever federal carbon pollution standard for every new power plant built in America. This is a game changer for the climate – especially because power plants are our single largest source of carbon pollution.
You can bet that corporate polluters are already doing everything they can to block these important health protections, while members of the environmental and health communities are already voicing their support. If supporters like you stand up and demand the strongest standard possible, we can ensure a cleaner, healthier future for everyone.
The unlimited dumping of carbon pollution is a chief cause of climate change. And that means more frequent and violent storms and extreme weather events, as well as worse smog, which cause asthma attacks.
Will you join others around the country in saying you believe we must put people before polluters and protect our children and future generations from climate change?
