Help Support Clean Air and Public Health
Make Your Voice Heard
For the first time, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued standards that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fossil-fuel-fired power plants. The EPA is issuing these standards to protect public health as authorized under the Clean Air Act.
Greenhouse gases are associated with increases in heat in the air, causing heatwaves, which are the leading cause of weather-related deaths. Greenhouse gases are also associated with the formation of smog, which exacerbates asthma, heart disease, and respiratory ailments.
The EPA has been the subject of a wave of attacks from Congress during the past year as it has tried to update the Clean Air Act and provide standards to address pollutants that harm human health. Please show your support to the EPA for issuing these important standards on greenhouse gases.
