Tell Our Decision Makers: Stand up for Ozone Pollution Limits.

Please ask President Obama and your representatives in Congress to support more protective limits on ozone pollution to better protect the health of our families and children. The Environmental Protection Agency recently announced a stronger national limit on ozone, an important step forward. But Congress is hearing from a lot of polluters who want to block these new limits and weaken the Clean Air Act. They need to hear from you, too.

Ground-level ozone, or smog, is a dangerous air pollutant impacting millions of Americans every year. Anyone who works or plays outside can be at increased risk from ozone pollution, as well as children, older adults, people with asthma, and people living in low-income communities. Someone in everyone's family is at risk from ozone pollution.

Breathing unhealthy levels of ozone pollution:

  • irritates the nose and lungs;
  • causes shortness of breath; wheezing and coughing;
  • triggers asthma attacks, leading to increased hospitalizations and missed school and workdays;
  • has been linked to low birth-weight in babies; and
  • can even kill.

Please join us today to send a strong message to Congress and President Obama showing your support for strong healthy air protections. We must fight to ensure that they reject pressure from industry lobbyists to block the new ozone protections and weaken the Clean Air Act. Please ask them to stand up for your family’s health.
