The EPA Needs to Hear from You


By

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a groundbreaking new proposal, creating the 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.

The unlimited dumping of carbon pollution is the chief cause of climate change. Reducing the amount of carbon pollution from power plants is a life-saving measure that will protect our children, our nation and the world from the devastating effects of climate change.

We have only a short time to tell the EPA we support this effort to reduce the deadly effects that carbon pollution has on the health of our children and our environment. The EPA needs to hear from you—add your voice in favor of this historic regulation!

Corporate polluters are already doing everything they can to block this important health protection. 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?

Submit a public comment to the EPA in support of the standard and your voice will be part of the official record.
