The Trump Administration has finalized a decision to scrap the Clean Power Plan — and "replace" it with a plan that has no meaningful limits on carbon pollution. It's likely this is a "do-nothing" program that could actually increasepollution from inefficient, highly-polluting coal-fired power plants in many states.
This attack on climate action flies in the face of science and undermines clean energy progress that would benefit all Americans. It fails to fulfill EPA's responsibility to protect Americans from climate and health-harming pollution. And we're not falling for it.
Tell Congress: Americans won't stand for fake climate action. It's time to demand a real plan from EPA.
SUBJECT: Please publicly stand against EPA's dangerous Clean Power Plan rollback
Dear [Decision Maker],
The Trump Administration's new so-called "Affordable Clean Energy" plan is a giveaway to industry that will leave Americans completely unprotected from dangerous carbon pollution from fossil fuel-fired power plants.
A Yale study previously found that majorities of Americans in all 50 states and all 435 Congressional Districts support setting protective carbon dioxide emissions limits on coal-fired power plants, but this new finalized rule flies in the face of what the American public wants by setting absolutely no meaningful reduction requirements.
This rule begs for congressional oversight. Please publicly announce your opposition to this plan, and work with your colleagues in Congress to investigate the administration's failure to protect Americans from carbon pollution and its misleading justification for this rollback.
