Fight Back Against Clean Power Plan Repeal

OFFICIAL DAILY ACTION for Sunday, January 28: Fight Back Against Repeal of the Clean Power Plan

Climate change’s dangerous impacts are hitting communities across the U.S.– which is why it is so important that we continue to take steps forward with a transition to cleaner energy production. But EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is relentlessly pursuing his plan to repeal the Clean Power Plan, one of the most important climate change commitments the U.S. has ever taken.

We need pollution limits on dirty power plants – we need the Clean Power Plan. The EPA is now accepting comments on their polluter-backed proposal for repeal.

Action: Leave comments to show Pruitt and Trump the breadth of public support for fighting climate change.

Sample comment

 “Repealing the Clean Power Plan moves our country in the opposite direction and puts this EPA on the wrong side of history. I support the Clean Power Plan because it sets commonsense national limits on otherwise unlimited carbon pollution from power plants and encourages the development of clean, renewable energy. By moving to repeal the Clean Power Plan, Administrator Pruitt is undermining vital health protections that reduce air pollution and curb the effects of climate change. We need the EPA to strengthen safeguards that address climate change, not tear them down. Administrator Pruitt should immediately reconsider this reckless and harmful action.”
