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.
The Trump Administration has nominated Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler to permanently become the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This nomination is dangerous, irresponsible, and unacceptable. Wheeler’s fingerprints are all over the very worst environmental proposals of the Trump Administration. He has proven that he has no interest in protecting people’s health and safety, putting us on a path to climate safety, or reining in toxic chemicals or harmful air pollution. Wheeler was for many years a lobbyist for the coal industry — and it’s clear from his actions that corporate polluters are his first priority.
Tell your Senators that parents oppose this nomination.
Trump’s EPA — under the leadership of acting head, Andrew Wheeler — has hit its lowest, most cynical level in its radical agenda to destroy protections against pollution. EPA has launched a process to sabotage and ultimately destroy our Mercury and Air Toxics Standards. These are protections that keep a terrible poison from harming our babies’ brains. This is a terrifying development because of what it means for our health. It’s also terrifying because it shows that Trump’s EPA will stop at nothing to protect polluter profits. Please let EPA and Congress know that this is an outrage — EPA must not touch the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards.
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.
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. Declare your right to freedom from pollution below.Send a Message
