Today, April 22 is Earth Day! Earth Day is a time to celebrate the beauty of our air, water and the environment around us. At the League, we try to celebrate Earth Day everyday by working to make the environment safer from pollutants, defending the Clean Air Act, and standing up for people not polluters. As you celebrate the environment around you today, we hope you will also take the chance to let your voice be heard on a historic regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The EPA has taken an important step to limit carbon pollution from new power plants. This means that we can cut smog and decrease asthma attacks and permanent damage to our children's lungs. The agency is now accepting public comments on the proposal and you can add your support for this important regulation.
Head on over to our Action Page, fill in your information and let your voice be heard! You will be joining thousands of Americans adding their support to this essential regulation and recommitting your support to the environment and our beautiful planet. You’ll also find additional resources to study regarding this regulation including the EPA fact sheet and the League’s statement of support.
Have a Happy Earth Day! And thank you for joining with us in working to protect our environment!
