IF YOU ONLY HAVE TIME TO DO ONE THING TODAY
An extensive and growing body of scientific evidence shows that ground level ozone, or smog, causes measurable, serious health impacts at levels commonly found in metropolitan areas across the U.S. That’s why EPA has proposed to tighten allowable levels of smog from 75 parts per billion (ppb), our current standard, to a range of 65-70 ppb.In order to truly protect children’s lungs, the national standard for smog should be set at 60 ppb. Tell the EPA you support stronger protections against smog pollution.Take Action Now!
TELL YOUR SENATORS: HELP STOP CLIMATE CHANGE
The EPA has taken important steps to curbing carbon dioxide and methane emissions from power plants, natural gas operations, and other sources. It’s now up to the states to implement strategies that will cut these dangerous pollutants in simple, cost-effective ways, all the while improving human health and growing the clean energy economy. Please tell your Senators: Support national limits on methane and carbon pollution so that we can curb climate change.Send a Message
TELL DOLLAR STORES: STOP SELLING TOXIC PRODUCTS
Recent testing of dollar store products found that 81% of the products tested contained one or more hazardous chemicals above levels of concern, and almost half of the products contained two or more hazardous chemicals. In order to protect children from asthma attacks, neurological damage, and other health impacts, dollar stores should stop selling toxic products. Please send a message to the CEOs of the largest dollar store chains asking them to protect our families and communities.Send a Message
TELL THE SENATE TO END TAX BREAKS FOR OIL, GAS AND COAL
Millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet. But the world’s richest and most powerful companies–billion dollar corporate oil and gas giants–are getting hundreds of millions of dollars, every year, from the U.S. government in the form of tax breaks. Tell the Senate that it’s time to end these tax breaks for wealthy and powerful oil, gas and coal companies.Send a Message
TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA: REJECT THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE
The Keystone pipeline encourages the development for many decades of Alberta’s tar sands, some of the dirtiest fuel on the planet. The United States can, and must, refuse to be complicit–refuse to be a partner–in harvesting this filthy fuel. Keystone is about yesterday’s power. We must focus–as engineers, economists, and parents and consumers–on tomorrow’s power. We thank President Obama for his veto of Congress’s Keystone Pipeline bill, but it must be rejected once and for all. Please tell President Obama to reject the Keystone pipeline.Send a Message
TELL YOUR SENATORS: PROTECT OUR FAMILIES FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS
Our current chemical safety law, the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, is badly broken. It allows chemicals onto the market without adequate safety testing. We think it’s time to change that. Tell your Senators to support strong legislation that truly protects vulnerable populations, such as babies and children, from the health effects of toxic chemical exposures.Send a Message
Tell BABIES”R”US: STOP SELLING TOXIC CHEMICALS
Chemicals used widely in consumer products have been linked to a range of health problems, such as asthma, learning disabilities, diabetes, obesity, and reproductive problems. Lax federal laws keep potentially toxic chemicals in our products – but retailers like Babies”R”Us can do better. Tell Babies”R”Us to protect children’s health by requiring that suppliers use the safest materials available. Tell Toys”R”Us/Babies”R”Us CEO Antonio Urcelay that it’s time take action on toxic chemicals.
