Power plants are the largest source of dangerous carbon pollution in the United States and carbon pollution is the leading cause of climate change. Despite this there are currently no federal limits on the carbon pollution power plants can release. The Obama Administration has promised to issue regulations controlling carbon pollution from new and existing power plants within the next two years. Ensuring these regulations move forward is not just the President’s job; it must be done in partnership with the U.S. Senate because the Senate can block the President’s action. Tell your Senators to put people before polluters. Reducing the amount of carbon pollution from power plants is a life-saving measure that will protect our children, our nation and the world from the devastating effects of climate change.
Polluters will stop at nothing to kill these life-saving regulations. Ask your Senators to support the Obama Administration’s plan to cut carbon pollution.
