Twitter Blizzard!

Power plants release more than 2 billion tons of carbon pollution every year, 40% of total U.S. emissions. Currently there are no limits on this pollution. So, if we can cut the pollution coming from our coal fired power plants, we’ll have taken a huge step in fighting climate change.

In fact, in President Obama’s groundbreaking Climate Action Plan, he’s asked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to do just that – to limit carbon pollution from industrial power plants – an authority granted to them under the Clean Air Act. But right now, the EPA needs OUR support to implement the President’s Climate Action Plan. The EPA is coming under fire from big polluters and their allies in congress; they are fighting tooth and nail to protect that status quo which will allow them to continue dumping unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into the atmosphere. Our Senators and Governors need to know that we support the President’s Climate Action Plan and the EPA’s authority to limit carbon pollution from power plants, a key step in fighting climate change.

If you love and depend on a consistent winter season as much as we do, please take a minute and tweet your Senator and your Governor below, thanking them for their support of action on climate or in some cases, asking them to support taking action. Let’s create a blizzard of tweets to Capitol Hill and our state capitols, supporting the EPA’s right to cut carbon pollution.
