Take Action

Now Is the Time to Clean Up Carbon Pollution

Power plant pollution makes people sick and cuts lives short. Thankfully, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed to set the first-ever limits on carbon pollution from existing power plants. These safeguards will improve the quality of our air, protect our health and spark innovation in clean energy technologies. Join us in calling on the EPA to set strong, enforceable federal standards.

Tell EPA you want less carbon pollution in the air from existing power plants.

Less Wood Smoke Means Healthier Air For Our Neighborhoods

After years of delay, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finally proposed new limits on harmful air pollution from new wood-burning devices. Strong standards will help make sure that new wood burning devices are much cleaner and do not further pollute our air. EPA needs to adopt these long-overdue standards to protect our health and our neighborhoods from harmful wood smoke-related air pollutants.

Tell EPA to clean up wood smoke in our neighborhoods.

Set Power Plant Carbon Pollution Standards

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed new standards that will, for the first time, establish federal limits on carbon pollution from new power plants. To ensure these standards make it across the finish line, EPA now needs to hear strong public support for them. Without these standards, there are no federal limits on the amount of carbon pollution that power plants are allowed to emit.

Tell EPA you want less carbon pollution in the air.

Tell Congress: Protect The Air We Breathe

Your right to breathe clean and healthy air is under attack. Big corporate polluters are pressuring Congress to weaken the Clean Air Act – a law that prevents tens of thousands of asthma attacks, heart attacks, strokes, and premature deaths caused by air pollution each year.

Tell your lawmakers to protect the Clean Air Act today.
