This action alert comes from Pete Altman at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). The Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart join with the USCCB and numerous others who hold our environment sacred, in sending this out. Please consider taking the action and then pass the opportunity on to people you know!
On June 2 the EPA proposed limits on climate-destroying carbon pollution from our nation’s 600 coal-fired power plants.
This is historic. These limits will stop the unlimited carbon pollution that spews out from its largest source — coal-fired power plants.
Limiting this carbon pollution is the most effective way to take action on global warming. It’s a huge step toward protecting our children and future generations.
Without strong support from the public, this limit could be killed by Big Coal and their allies in Congress. And right now, bills in Congress are being lined up to block these limits.
With your help, we can stop the era of unlimited carbon pollution and protect ourselves, our children and our planet.
