Tell EPA to cap carbon pollution from coal plants

April 11, 2014

Climate change has destabilized our weather, unleashed major storms, inflicted punishing droughts, and caused unnecessary death and disease. Through it all, coal-fired power plants have been allowed to remain a major driver of this destruction, emitting almost 40% of America's carbon pollution.

Now you can tell the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to set bold limits on the amount of carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants.

EPA is drafting rules that will determine what limits to place on coal plant carbon emissions. They are collecting comments from citizens like you to help guide them in reaching that decision.

Call on the EPA to slash carbon emissions. Our health and our futures depend on slowing, stopping and reversing climate change. The only way to get there is to mandate strict limits on this dangerous pollution.

Cutting carbon pollution will also have another important impact: It will increase U.S. legitimacy in calling on other nations to drive down their own climate pollution. 

It's time to take action on climate change -- and submitting comments to the EPA is effective, easy and quick. Please take action now. So much is riding on it.
