Send a Message to Obama: Curb Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Bookmark and Share

The Clean Air Act is under attack from powerful Big Oil and Big Coal interests.

Recently the EPA sent a draft greenhouse gas rule to the White House, that if approved, will use the Clean Air Act to crack down on greenhouse gas pollution from coal-fired power plants, oil refineries, and other major industrial polluters.

This is a watershed moment in the battle to stop runaway global warming while we still can -- and we need your help.

The oil and coal industries are paying lobbyists to wait in line at hearings and are waging a massive campaign to weaken new global warming laws. They've spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying in Washington. They know that the White House has backed down on other environmental initiatives and they’re betting Obama will back down on this one too.

We must stand strong on this issue and show the Obama administration that we support its efforts to regulate carbon in the atmosphere.  The Clean Air Act has successfully stopped air pollution for thirty year saving thousands of lives and billions of dollars.

Contact Obama today and urge him to show bold leadership in the climate crisis and move quickly to reduce greenhouse gases and protect our health and welfare using the Clean Air Act.
