Show EPA that you support a proposed rule to limit harmful carbon pollution from power plants:

Attend a rally and the EPA hearing in Atlanta on Tuesday, July 29 or submit written comments to EPA today.

In June 2014, EPA proposed standards known as the Clean Power Plan to set the first-ever limits on carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution from existing power plants. These standards will help reduce dangerous CO2 emissions that fuel costly, even deadly, extreme weather events and worsen air quality which contributes to asthma attacks, heat-related deaths, and other illnesses. Vulnerable communities in the Southeast, such as low-income communities, communities of color, children, and the elderly, are disproportionally impacted by the negative effects of carbon pollution.

Despite these risks to our communities, our economy, and public health, polluting companies will continue to spend millions of dollars fighting against standards to lower carbon pollution by urging lawmakers to weaken, delay or stop the rule from coming into effect.

Please show your support for the Clean Power Plan: attend a rally and the EPA hearing in Atlanta on July 29.

RSVP for the rally on Facebook, and contact Amelia Shenstone at amelia@cleanenergy.org for information on the rally as well as information on carpooling from your respective state (please include where you will be traveling from in your email).

Can’t attend the rally or the hearing? You can now submit written comments to EPA expressing your support for this rule through October 16, 2014.
