The EPA should put people before polluters
October 12, 2017
This week, the EPA announced it will begin the process of repealing the Clean Power Plan. The Clean Power Plan is our nation's broadest, most far-reaching policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It would require states to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide from their electricity sectors by almost one-third.
We are already witnessing the serious health effects of climate change across our country. Following a summer of extreme weather events, this week at least 21 people died from California wildfires. The recent surge of hurricanes caused disease, injury and death. Heat waves, increased air pollution, droughts, floods and damage to drinking water sources are other public health impacts of a changing climate.
Climate change harms the most vulnerable members of our community. Children, the poor, the elderly, and those with a weak or impaired immune system are most susceptible to the health impacts of climate change.
Tell the EPA: Eliminating the Clean Power Plan puts the health of our communities at risk. Do not repeal or dismantle the Clean Power Plan.
