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.
TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA: CUT METHANE EMISSIONS FROM EXISTING FRACKING OPERATIONS
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!
TELL EPA YOU SUPPORT STRONG LIMITS ON NEW SOURCES OF FRACKING POLLUTION
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
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. 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!

TELL YOUR GOVERNOR: PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM CLIMATE POLLUTION
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
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. According to the International Monetary Fund, energy subsidies are projected to amount to 5.3 trillion dollars, or six and a half per cent of global G.D.P., in 2015 alone. (At seven hundred billion dollars a year, the United States comes second only to China in total subsidies provided.) 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
