View photos from our 6th annual Play-In for Climate Action! See our kids at play and our Moms Clean Air Force members on Capitol Hill delivering a public message to 100 congressional offices: It’s time to get serious about climate change!
President Trump is misleading Americans with false claims of stewardship of our environment in his speech today. By making our air and water dirtier, and our climate more dangerous, Trump is a disaster for America.
Our children will be living with the deadly consequences of an overheating planet for the rest of their lives — what we do, or don’t do, in the next five to ten years makes an enormous difference. Our members want to know what candidates’ climate plans will be in their first 100 days in office.
Moms Clean Air Force Trisha Sheehan’s child attends a NJ school with mercury contaminated floors. She brings this issue to her state senator, and in a letter to EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, Sen. Booker mentions cases of mercury vapor in multiple schools across his state.
While PA Representative Danielle Friel Otten’s platform is focused on social justice at every level – strong public schools, making health care more affordable and accessible, public safety, workforce development and family-sustaining jobs – it was environmental justice that first called her to run for office.
Bill Wehrum is stepping down as the head of air and radiation office of EPA. He is leaving amid an investigation into his possible violations of federal ethics rules. Wehrum has made a fortune as a high paid attorney representing oil and gas interests, coal interests and coal-based power companies.
Moms are climate voters. As we watch the debates, our members want to know that the climate crisis is a top line issue. We are listening for each candidate’s thoughtful commitment to tackling carbon and methane emissions. We want to know how each candidate plans to get us to a fossil-fuel free, 100% Clean Energy Economy by 2050.
Today is is not just the first day of summer, it’s also #ShowYourStripes Day on Twitter. We love these powerful visuals that convey the dramatic impact fossil fuel burning is having on our climate!
While smoggy particles and carbon dioxide are still primary sources of air pollution, much concern has turned to airborne plastic, too. Here’s how plastic becomes an air pollutant, why plastic pollution is an increasing problem, and what parents can do about it.
Donald Trump and EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler are gutting a plan that would reduce carbon pollution, slow climate change, and protect our children’s health. If anything, the Clean Power Plan should be made stronger, not gutted with a replacement plan that does nothing to put us on the path to climate safety.
A new report by the Environmental Defense Fund details the major threats to public health and future generations from the Trump EPA attacks on the 2016 chemical safety law – the Lautenberg Act.
Parents should be able to trust that their government is protecting them from chemical risks in our homes and communities. We need a drastic change to EPA’s current direction on chemical safety. Without protection, our children and grandchildren, who are already paying the price of this travesty, will continue to be at risk for decades to come.
