Facebook can't save the EPA

Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear Friend,

Tell the EPA You Support
Its Plan to Curb Global
Warming Pollution!

EPA: Protecting Americans from Global Warming Pollution
Take Action Today!
It is completely ridiculous: right now, power plants and oil refineries are allowed to spew unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into our air. They heat our world and devastate our communities with abandon and expect taxpayers to shoulder the damages.

The good news is that the EPA is about to change that. It's moving ahead with carbon pollutions protections - also known as New Source Performance Standards, or NSPS - to limit the amount of carbon big polluters can emit. Supporting the EPA's standards is the most important thing you can do this year to slow climate change.

If approved, the EPA's plan will tackle the lion's share of dirty power plants and oil refineries and dramatically improve our health and our future as we transition to a clean energy economy.1

Dirty polluters and their pals - like the folks behind the government shutdown in Wisconsin2 - are doing everything they can to stop the EPA's efforts to protect our health.

Without accountability for these massive corporations, polluters have free rein to continue dumping pollution into our air and water -- and they know taxpayers, like us, will have to foot the bill for their disasters while they keep the profits.

We need the EPA to hold these corporate polluters accountable for their dirty and dangerous actions and make sure our kids have clean air to breathe, safe water to drink, and healthy neighborhoods where they can grow and play.

Thanks for all that you do to protect our health and the environment.
