Want the EPA to hear from you? Here’s your chance.
The EPA is accepting comments on their New Source Performance Standards, a set of rules used to limit the global warming pollution from big fossil fuel industries like coal plants and petroleum refineries.
The big polluters will be pressuring the EPA to slow down the rulemaking process and issue weak, watered-down rules. The EPA needs to hear from you, too.
There is some model language for you to review in the form to the right. We encourage you to use the language as the basis for your own comments. We also urge you to include your own stories about why fighting climate change and protecting our health is important to you, your family and your community.
Fill out the form and press the "Submit Form" button. We'll collect all your comments and deliver them to the EPA before the March 18 deadline.
I am encouraged to hear the EPA is taking action to reduce the global warming pollution that causes global climate change and harms my health. I support your common sense efforts to limit pollution from the two largest sources of global warming pollution in the United States, the fossil-fuel power plant and petroleum refining industries.
The EPA has determined that the effects of global warming pollution harm public health -- for example, by increasing heat-related deaths, contributing to respiratory health problems and worsening allergies. It is the EPA’s duty to limit global warming pollution to protect my health, my community’s health and the health of future generations.
A limit on global warming pollution is an important step toward America’s clean energy future. These new rules will complement the EPA’s other greenhouse gas reduction efforts and will encourage investment in clean, renewable energy technologies.
I demand that the EPA swiftly develop these ‘New Source Performance Standard’ rules for fossil fuel power plants and petroleum refineries and make the pollution limits as strong as possible.
