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 fracking 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. In the first two decades after its release, it is 84 times more harmful. Please tell President Obama: Methane Leaks are Lethal: Find ‘em Fast. Fix ‘em Fast.Take Action Now!
The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a rule to protect Americans from fracking pollution. This rule is an important first step in limiting fracking pollution from oil and gas operations and protecting our families’ health. 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. Please submit your comment of support to the EPA and let them know: this is just the beginning.Send a Message
We’ve joined an international coalition of parent groups, Our Kids’ Climate, to bring the voice of parents to the Paris climate talks. Together, we are gathering 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 in Paris.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
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. The bipartisan bill is a significant improvement over our current, broken law, the Toxic Substances Control Act, or TSCA. Please tell your Senators to make it a priority to move this bipartisan bill to the Senate floor. We’ve waited too long for reform that will protect our families!
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
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
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
