Coal Plants Fire Up to Power Millions of Air Conditioners to Cope with Heat Wave Caused by Burning Coal
The amount of carbon pollution in our atmosphere keeps rising. We can see the impacts of climate change—from extreme weather to deepening droughts—right before our eyes. You and I know climate change is a reality.
But here’s the good news: Today you can finally do something about it. You can support the first limit on carbon pollution in the U.S.
And it gets even better. We created this short video to explain the historic carbon pollution standard just for you.
Watch the video, and learn more about how you can help our country take an important step toward solving the climate crisis.
This is a big deal: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently proposed the first-ever limit on carbon pollution. That’s right, for the first time we’ll have a limit on the amount of dirty carbon pollution new power plants can spew into our atmosphere.
We need millions of Americans, just like you, to stand up and support this courageous first step toward solving the climate crisis.
