Urge AEP to Stop Lobbying Against Life-Saving Pollution Standards

American Electric Power (AEP) is #1 in most major air pollution categories. But instead of cleaning up its act, AEP is spending tens of millions to lobby against your clean air standards.

Now it has gone even further, writing an outrageous 56-page draft legislation that would gut life-saving clean air standards and lead to as many as 34,000 premature deaths in the first two years alone.

The question for AEP and other polluting industries is simple: What's your number? How many lives are you willing to sacrifice with your assault on clean air standards?

Take Action Today: Tell AEP to stop sacrificing the lives of Americans for their corporate profits.
Dear [Decision Maker],

American Electric Power ranks #1 in most major air pollution categories. But instead of cleaning up its act, AEP has spent tens of millions to lobby against life-saving clean air standards.

Now it has gone even further, drafting and circulating an outrageous 56-page draft legislation that would gut life-saving clean air standards and lead to as many as 34,000 premature deaths in the first two years alone -- not to mention 240,000 asthma attacks, and 1.5 million missed work and sick days.

The question for AEP and its allies is simple: What's your number? How many lives are you willing to sacrifice with your assault on clean air standards?

More than 40 years after the passage of the Clean Air Act, roughly 40% of AEP's power plants still lack advanced pollution control technologies. These outdated and inefficient facilities are responsible for a disproportionate share of the mercury, arsenic, acid gases and other toxic air pollution that threaten Americans and burden our economy with lost work days, costly emergency room visits, and lower worker productivity.

I urge AEP to stop working against long-awaited, common sense pollution standards and to embrace this important opportunity to clean up the dirtiest facilities, deploy existing and cost-effective pollution control technologies, and save American lives.
