Climate change is a public health issue!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan will cut carbon pollution from power plants by 32 percent by 2030. However, some in Congress continue to pursue efforts to block or delay EPA from implementing these new 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 or delay EPA from moving forward with protecting public health from the impacts of 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 Environmental Protection Agency's efforts to clean up carbon pollution from the nation's power plants through the Clean Power Plan. 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 EPA from moving forward with strong protections to reduce carbon pollution and other dangerous power plant emissions through the Clean Power Plan.
