This week we got the exciting news, that along with our coalition partners, we’ve collected nearly one million comments on the Environmental Protection Agency‘s (EPA) new Industrial Carbon Regulation! Our coalition partners have already delivered these comments over and presented them to the EPA, but we’re not done yet – submit your comment today!
The regulation, released on April 13, needs your support in order to clean up the air we breathe and decrease asthma attacks and permanent damage to our children's lungs. Specifically, the new standard limits the amount of carbon that new power plants can emit into the air.
We need every League supporter to send a comment to the EPA. Corporate polluters are already doing everything they can to block these important health protections and we must add our voices to fight back.
The comment period has been extended to June 25, in large part due to the reaction that they have already received. Visit our action page for more information on this important standard and to submit a comment. Don’t forget to share this opportunity to support people and not polluters with your friends through Facebook and Twitter.
