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.
Michael Dourson, a Cincinnati-based toxicologist, has been nominated by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to oversee the chemical safety office at EPA. This office is responsible for protecting our children from toxic chemicals in consumer products and Dourson’s long history of pandering to chemical companies makes him unfit for the job. Please tell your Senator: Dourson should not be responsible for protecting our children from toxic chemicals.
By attempting to repeal America’s Clean Power Plan, the Trump administration and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt are casting the future of our world—and the future of our children and grandchildren—into jeopardy. It is an irresponsible, dangerous decision, and flies in the face of the tremendous support shown for the Plan by red and blue states, cities, communities, religious leaders, and some of America’s largest corporations. Pruitt’s EPA has offered no replacement for the Plan. However, a public comment period is open until January 16. Add your voice! Demand a Plan that will reduce harmful pollution and protect future generations.
Oil and gas giants- some of the world’s most profitable companies- are granted hundreds of millions of dollars in tax subsidies each year–while they continue to contribute to dangerous climate change. Millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet. But we are helping make dirty energy companies—and their lobbyists–very rich. Tell the Senate that it’s time to end these tax breaks for wealthy and powerful oil, gas and coal companies.
Trump’s proposed budget for FY 2018 will slash the EPA budget by more than 31%, gutting bedrock pollution protection programs and hobbling enforcement of basic clean air standards. This budget is a naked attempt to put power in the hands of polluters. As parents, we are outraged at this proposal. Please tell your Congressperson: This budget proposal is making me and my family sick.
With America’s departure from the historic Paris Climate Agreement, the responsibility for climate action now falls on others: States, businesses, universities, local leaders, and communities. States—and their governors—hold particular power in the fight against devastating climate change. Already, we have seen several states announce they will follow the targets set by the Agreement. However, we need more. With the federal government surrendering its chance to lead on climate action, our states must be as aggressive as possible in the effort to thwart global warming and protect the health of our children. The future of our families and our world depend upon it. Let your governor know that you demand climate action and you need them to take the lead.
Among our most essential rights: Healthy lungs, hearts and brains. Safe and thriving families, communities, and economies. A serious commitment to defeat climate change. The right to live free from pollution. This is our Declaration of Freedom from Pollution. It means that all Americans can expect a happier and healthier life.
