Climate change is a public health issue!

The Clean Power Plan will cut carbon pollution from power plants by 32 percent by 2030. However, President Trump and his new EPA Adminstrator Scott Pruitt as well as some in Congress continue to work to block or weaken the implementation of these protections. Without these standards, power plants will continue to emit these pollutants into the air unchecked.

Reducing these pollutants will help limit the gases that contribute to climate change, which poses serious, long-term health consequences including increased illness and death due to respiratory illness, heat-related stress and insect-borne diseases.

Please take the time to tell your members of Congress to oppose efforts to block efforts to protect public health from the impacts of climate change and to support ongoing efforts that help state and local health departments prepare for and repsond to health threats caused by climate change.

Protect public health by supporting reductions in carbon pollution

Dear [Decision Maker],

As public a health advocate, I am writing to support the Clean Power Plan and other efforts to reduce carbon pollution. Reducing carbon emissions from power plants -- the nation's single largest source of carbon pollution -- will help clean up these plants and limit the pollution that contributes to climate change.



Please stand up for public health and oppose any efforts in Congress to block or delay the Clean Power Plan and other efforts to reduce carbon pollution and other dangerous power plant emissions and support funding for our states and communities to prepare for and respond to the health threats associated with climate change.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
