Today’s Action: Stop Trump from destroying Obama’s Clean Power Plan

While in office, President Obama enacted multiple heralded environmental protection plans to reduce greenhouse emissions and battle global warming. One particular plan Obama set in motion was to get our nation’s cars to a standard of 50 miles-per-gallon by the year 2025 — one of our government’s most effective tool in the fight against climate change.

But last month, the Trump administration’s twisted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cozied up with big oil and announced they would unravel Obama’s regulations on cars.

Now, the so-called EPA has gone further: adding coal-manufacturers to their party invitation, and announcing a complete replacement to Obama’s legacy Clean Power Plan (CPP) with a new Trump scam titled the Affordable Energy Plan (AEP). And it’s about as good for the environment as Trump’s tax “reform” is for the 99%.

Call your members of Congress and tell them they must create federal air quality standards and fight Trump’s Affordable Energy Plan.

Trump’s plan is little more than a corporate gift-bag, a perverse demolition of environmental regulations. While Obama’s CPP would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 32% by 2030…Trump’s AEP will only reduce emissions by .7-1.5% — not nearly enough to curb the tremendous damage being done to our planet.

First he pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Now this. We’re going to see more hurricanes and melted ice caps…his own administration predicts up to 1400 additional premature deaths and 48,000 new cases of asthma due to increasingly poor air quality…unless we act fast to counter him.

Email or call your Members of Congress and demand they focus efforts on blocking Trump’s Affordable Energy Plan by creating federal air quality standards that are ACTUAL standards.

Trump’s energy plan is a nightmare that none of us can afford.
