This may sound crazy, but it's a fact: Today, there are no emission limits on our nation's single largest source of carbon pollution.
About 40 percent of all carbon pollution in America comes from our power plants, but we don't have anything in place on a national level to regulate the amount of carbon they put into the air.
That's why the EPA announced a new proposal to set carbon pollution standards for power plants, the same way we regulate other dangerous substances, like arsenic and mercury. It's a common-sense way to start to make a very real dent in reducing carbon pollution.
Right now, the EPA is asking for the public's input on these new limits on carbon emissions -- add your name to show your support, and we'll pass it along.
Climate change is real -- there's no credible scientific debate anymore. We're seeing its effects more and more every year. That's why we need to do something about it -- that includes taking action to reduce our carbon emissions.
President Obama knows how crucial this is. The Climate Action Plan he laid out this summer set guidelines for these proposed EPA rules and laid out a roadmap for further carbon pollution reduction, expanded renewables, and more energy efficiency projects.
He's keeping his word on climate change -- and now we need to do our part.
Add your name today to support the EPA's proposal to clean up our power plants:
