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.
Existing oil and gas operations leak methane and other dangerous air pollution into the atmosphere, compromising the health of children in communities across the country and contributing to runaway climate change. We need limits on existing sources of methane emissions, not just sources that have yet to be built. Methane is a far more potent driver of global warming than carbon pollution. Please tell EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy: We need action now to stop one of the greatest threats to our planet’s health.Take Action Now!
The Senate has passed the Lautenberg Act by unanimous consent, bringing us one step closer to safer products—that aren’t tested on us, or on our children. Our chemical safety system has been broken for nearly 40 years, thanks to the Toxic Substances Control Act that, for decades, has exposed families to potentially harmful chemicals that went untested and unregulated. Please tell your members of Congress you expect them to protect our children from harmful and dangerous chemicals.Send a Message
America’s Clean Power Plan is the first-ever national curb on the most significant driver of human-caused climate pollution: Carbon dioxide emissions. The Plan allows states to create individual roadmaps for stimulating the deployment of clean, reliable and affordable energy sources. Tell your governor to get started on crafting a State Implementation Plan for America’s Clean Power Plan.Send a Message
In 2014, the solar industry employed twice as many workers as coal miners. The solar industry is booming in America and this boom is moving the USA towards energy independence while reducing our reliance on fossil fuels that threaten our children’s health and our climate. The Koch brothers and other dirty energy allies have poured their money into efforts to line their own pockets by blocking clean energy incentives. Please tell your governor to support Energy Freedom and keep the Koch brothers from blocking progress on solar energy.Send a Message
America’s Clean Power Plan is the first-ever national curb on the most significant driver of human-caused climate pollution: Carbon dioxide emissions. Yet the fossil fuel companies are fighting for their right to pollute, and legal challenges have already begun. Tell your Attorney General to side with families – not polluters – and support America’s Clean Power Plan.Send a Message
We’ve joined an international coalition of parent groups, Our Kids’ Climate, and brought the voice of parents to the Paris climate talks. Together, we are continuing to gather the names of parents from every corner of the world, thousands upon thousands of us, to tell world leaders to act on climate. Now. For our kids. Please add your voice and stand strong for climate action worldwide.
Millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet. Meanwhile, corporate oil and gas giants- some of the world’s most profitable companies- are granted hundreds of millions of dollars in tax subsidies each year, all while they continue to contribute harm to a changing and endangered climate. We are subsidizing the very behavior that is destroying our planet. Tell the Senate that it’s time to end these tax breaks for wealthy and powerful oil, gas and coal companies.Send a Message
25 years ago company scientists warned ExxonMobil that carbon pollution from burning fossil fuels was endangering our climate’s stability. Rather than heed this warning, ExxonMobil chose to suppress and distort its own scientists’ findings. ExxonMobil went on to spend millions of dollars funding climate denial for decades, contributing to national confusion, setting up fake debates on science, and causing national paralysis in the face of this serious crisis. Please ask U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to launch a federal investigation of ExxonMobil.Send a Message
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
