SUPPORT THE EPA'S NEW RULE TO LIMIT CARBON POLLUTION FROM NEW POWER PLANTS

SUPPORT THE EPA'S NEW RULE TO LIMIT CARBON POLLUTION FROM NEW POWER PLANTS

A groundbreaking new standard to limit carbon pollution from new power plants help ensure a safer, cleaner, and healthier future has been proposed by the EPA.

Tell the EPA we need to make carbon pollution history:

Dear Environmental Protection Agency,

Iím writing to support the carbon pollution standards for new power plants.

Carbon pollution is being dumped into our atmosphere at unprecedented and unregulated rates, and itís costing us. Weíre paying in dollars, in lives, in jobs, in lifestyles -- truly in every way imaginable.

Because of this unchecked carbon pollution, Iím living in a world of extreme, erratic weather. In 2013 alone our precious planet was subject to biblical flooding, unprecedented wildfire, crippling drought, devastating super storms, and so much more. I donít want to leave that behind for future generations.

If carbon pollution continues unchecked, my children face a future of extreme weather, worsening health, food insecurity, and a bleak economy. I refuse to sacrifice their future when clean, renewable alternatives are readily available.

Today, power plants have limits on emissions of mercury, sulfur, arsenic, cyanide, soot, and lead, but there are no federal limits on carbon pollution that is responsible for climate change. This must end, and your limits on carbon pollution from new power plants are an important first step.

Thank you for recognizing the cost weíre all paying for carbon pollution, and for taking necessary steps to protect future generations of Americans, and people just like me.



Sincerely,
