Take Action to Cut Carbon Pollution

Cutting carbon pollution from U.S. power plants that burn fossil fuels is a critical piece of fighting climate change.

Right now, the Environmental Protection Agency is moving forward to address the carbon pollution from the coal fired power plants across the nation by setting strong limits on carbon pollution that power plants emit—and the EPA needs to hear from you.

The dirty fuel industry is using its tremendous profits to misguide the public on climate change, and stall action by our leaders. But, we can show the overwhelming support for action on climate change to protect wildlife and communities across the U.S.—and across the globe.
