people in front of power plantToday and tomorrow (July 29-30) the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding one of only four hearings across the nation to give the public an opportunity to provide feedback on the first-ever proposed federal limits on carbon pollution – the Clean Power Plan – which would reduce carbon dioxide emissions up to 30% below 2005 levels by 2030.  While we know that even stronger rules are needed, this is a vital first step for the EPA to reduce the carbon emissions overheating our planet.

Let’s show support for the Clean Power Plan and stronger action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions!  Help pack the EPA hearings and related events tomorrow and Wednesday!
