For too long, big power companies have been able to dump unlimited amounts of industrial carbon pollution into our air.
But now, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering historic standards on industrial carbon pollution from power plants. These new clean air standards would improve the quality of our air – and help move our country to a clean energy economy, sparking innovation in the clean technologies that can create jobs and reform our energy portfolio.
This is a critical victory in the fight against global warming, and an important first step towards a clean energy economy – but big power companies are spending millions of dollars lobbying to stop it. These corporate polluters get billions in special tax loopholes and government handouts. And now they're trying to block these vital new public health safeguards in order to keep dumping unlimited amounts of industrial carbon pollution into our air.
