Make a call to President Obama!


Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear Friend,

Make a Call
This spring, you joined more than 19,000 Sierra Club supporters who asked President Obama to support a strong pollution standard to protect Florida's water.
The administration is listening and the EPA has developed a pollution limit that will help clean up the toxic slime. But, this pollution limit is at risk.
Florida Governor Rick Scott and his administration want to replace the EPA standard with a weak rule written for Florida's corporate polluters.
More than 1,900 miles of rivers and streams, 375,000 acres of lakes, and 500 square miles of estuaries have been impacted by fertilizer, manure and sewage. Florida's economy and way of life are in danger. It's time to act.
As we speak, big polluters are putting strong pressure on the EPA to back off and let the state "handle" the slime crisis. That hasn't worked before, and it won't work now.
Clean water is essential to the environmental and economic health of Florida. By making a call today, you'll let President Obama know that the people -- not the polluters -- need to be heard.
Thanks for all you do for the environment,
Cris Costello
Florida Sierra Club
P.S. The more calls we get to the White House, the stronger our message. Share this alert with your friends and family.
