IF YOU ONLY HAVE TIME TO DO ONE THING: CUT CARBON POLLUTION
The EPA has taken important steps to cut carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, natural gas operations, and other sources. States must implement simple, cost-efficient strategies. This will help improve our health and grow the clean energy economy. Please tell your Senators: Support national limits on carbon pollution so that we can curb climate change.Take Action Now!
TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE: SUPPORT THE CLEAN POWER PLAN
To protect our communities and the public, we must significantly reduce carbon pollution from the largest source, which is existing power plants. The Clean Power Plan will set the nation’s first-ever carbon pollution standards for power plants. Please tell your representative to protect our children’s health by supporting the Clean Power Plan.Send a Message
TELL EPA TO PROTECT OUR FAMILIES FROM FRACKING POLLUTION
Methane is the primary component of natural gas. It is an extremely powerful greenhouse gas that is much more dangerous, in the short run, than carbon pollution. Methane escapes into the air through many stages of natural gas development. And methane isn’t the only problem with natural gas development. Families around the country are suffering from the noxious poisons that are part of the gas development process. Please tell EPA that we need strong protections from fracking pollution.Send a Message
TELL YOUR SENATORS: GET THE JOB DONE ON HISTORIC TOXIC CHEMICAL REFORM
After decades of work, we are on the verge of a historic change in the way toxic chemicals are regulated in this country, with The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. It is a significant improvement over our current, broken law, the Toxic Substances Control Act or TSCA. The work is not done yet, and there is time, while the bill is in committee, to amend provisions in several critical areas. Please tell your Senators to get the job done on historic toxic chemical reform.Send a Message
TELL YOUR SENATORS: PROTECT LITTLE LUNGS FROM SMOG
Smog causes measurable, serious health impacts to children at levels commonly found across the U.S. That’s why EPA has proposed to tighten the national smog standard. But Congressional attacks have already started — despite the fact that the current smog standard does not provide the public health protection that Americans need. Please tell your Senator to protect children’s health by supporting strong smog standards.Send a Message
TELL THE SENATE TO END FOSSIL FUEL SUBSIDIES
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 it’s time to end tax breaks for the wealthy and established fossil fuel industry.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
