The Time for Climate Action is Now

Action: Climate Change

March 5, 2013   Action Alert ID# 74

 

President Barack Obama delivered a crystal clear message to Congress and the nation in his State of the Union address: the time for climate action is now. This increased momentum for climate action is exciting, but there is a lot of work to be done!

Climate change is a result of too much carbon. When we burn gasoline to drive our cars or burn coal, oil, or gas to heat our homes and power our lives, we release carbon dioxide, which is now overloading our atmosphere.

Last year the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released draft standards that would, for the first time ever, limit harmful carbon pollution from new power plants, a critical step to reducing the effects of global warming and protecting public health.

These historic standards will soon be finalized. But this is just the beginning. The EPA is also obligated to draft standards that will limit carbon pollution from our nation's oldest and dirtiest coal-fired power plants.

Unfortunately, some members of Congress and their dirty energy allies will try to block or significantly delay the EPA from limiting carbon pollution from power plants.

Tell your members of Congress today that they should listen to the science and support the EPA's efforts to protect our communities and our planet from climate change by limiting carbon pollution from power plants.
