Tell the EPA: Protect the Climate and Our Health from Deadly Tailpipe Emissions
The EPA is currently weighing stronger tailpipe emissions standards from cars, SUVs, and heavy trucks.
Tailpipe emissions from cars, SUVs, and heavy trucks are the leading cause of climate change in the United States. Each year, this pollution also cuts short tens of thousands of lives and leaves even more people with respiratory diseases.
Here's the problem: many of the largest corporations on the planet are against any improvements to the EPA's emissions standards. They're lobbying the Biden administration and Congress to maintain the status quo.
That's why we need your help — environmentalists like you have a real chance to weigh in and convince the EPA to protect our climate and our health. If we don't speak out right now, corporate polluters could water down any rules, and not address our health and climate problems.
Take action by telling the EPA to adopt even stronger tailpipe emissions standards by adding your name.

I am a supporter of the League of Conservation Voters, and I am writing to ask that the EPA set the strongest rules possible to cut dangerous pollution from trucks and passenger vehicles. I urge you to ensure that light-, medium-,and heavy-duty vehicle standards accelerate greater zero-emission vehicle adoption, pushing beyond what is expected from federal clean energy investments.
Emissions from cars and trucks both contribute to climate change and impact my health and the health of communities across the country. Low-wealth communities and communities of color are often hit hardest, as are any neighborhoods near highways, freight hubs and anywhere with lots of traffic. These communities deserve a chance to live in a society where access to clean air is a fundamental right.
We encourage you to finalize the strongest standards possible that will open the door to a brighter future for all. Please adopt strong vehicle emissions standards that bring us to 100% clean new vehicles sold by 2035.
