How can you help clean the air? Take action!
Sometimes being a good mom means being an engaged citizen. Tell your political representatives that we share the air.
1. If you only have time to do one thing today
The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee voted to move Gina McCarthy’s nomination as administrator of the EPA forward to the full Senate floor. Any senator can hold up a full vote on a nomination, so please urge your Senators to support the nomination of Gina McCarthy.
2. TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA: BREAK THE CLIMATE PARALYSIS
The EPA has not released its promised carbon emissions standards for new power plants. Standards for existing power plants aren’t in sight. That means the U.S. has no plan for how we are going to reduce carbon emissions–the only way to slow down climate change. President Obama has proposed absolutely nothing to confront the climate crisis. Tell President Obama: Break the Climate Paralysis.
3. TELL FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA TO SPEAK UP ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
Few people have a voice as powerful as First Lady–and First Mom–Michelle Obama. It isn’t a cliché: a mother’s work, a parent’s work, will never be done. It is imperative that we parents unite to protect our children’s sacred right to clean air. Join us in encouraging First Lady Michelle Obama to raise her powerful voice and speak up about climate change.
4. SUPPORT TIER 3 FUEL AND EMISSIONS STANDARDS
The EPA is now accepting public comments on their Tier 3 Standards–a proposed set of rules to cut tailpipe emissions and clean up the fuel that we put in our cars. These standards will reduce the amount of sulfur in U. S. gasoline, which will result in an immediate reduction of emissions that is the equivalent of taking 33 million cars off our nation’s roads. Send a message to the EPA telling them you support these groundbreaking new clean air standards.
5. Tell the Senate to Pass Stronger Toxic Chemical Standards
A new bill introduced in the Senate, the Safe Chemicals Act of 2013, would strengthen the way our government regulates toxic chemicals, prioritizing the health of our children by requiring more thorough health testing, before these chemicals end up in the bodies of our children. Please join us in telling the Senate to pass stronger toxic chemical standards and keep the air within our homes safe and clean for our children.
