Trump is sabotaging Obama’s Clean Power Plan and must be stopped

don't end Obama's Clean Power Plan

President Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has begun the process of repealing President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which places first-ever limits on the huge quantities of carbon pollution emitted by our country’s electric power plants. Reining in these emissions is crucial to making progress against the worsening climate crisis.

Pruitt’s action is unacceptable. We need this vital, commonsense safeguard that will greatly reduce the United States’ largest source of carbon emissions. Tell the EPA to enforce the Clean Power Plan and defend our communities’ right to clean energy and a healthy future.

Pruitt’s announcement cements the guiding environmental principle of the Trump administration: Prop up the dying fossil fuel industry at any cost. This industry poisons the air and water of our most vulnerable communities while we watch the immediate impacts of climate change in real time. Our ocean is turning into a pressure cooker for hurricanes such as Harvey, Irma and Maria, which collectively have killed hundreds of people and displaced thousands.

We don’t have time to sit this fight out until the political winds shift in our favor. We need to tackle our climate crisis now. Demand that the Clean Power Plan remain in place—and tell the EPA to double down on our commitment to a clean energy future.
