Did you know that only a handful of huge factories and power plants emit over half of all U.S. global warming pollution?
The EPA is holding a 60 day comment period on its proposed Big Polluters Rule to make the worst offenders clean up their act, and we know polluting industries are already attempting to use this time to weaken the requirements.
It is critical that we give President Obama and his EPA the support they need to stand up to Big Oil and Coal and begin to undo the damage to our climate and economy caused by 8 years of inaction under the Bush Administration.
The Big Polluters Rule marks one of EPA’s most important commitments yet to moving us toward a clean energy economy. By requiring new or expanding Big Polluter facilities to install technology to clean up their emissions, the rule will quickly cut global warming pollution while still helping our economy grow.
Thanks for all that you do to protect the environment.
