You Can Support the First EPA Limits on Carbon Pollution

Here's a very quick and worthwhile petition-signing request from the Climate Reality Project (http://climaterealityproject.org/). Note that this petition is not limited to USA folks--it just asks you for your name, email address, and country. Please join in!
The climate movement is about to take a giant step forward: The EPA has proposed the first national standard to limit carbon pollution. This is exciting: And we have a petition for you to show your support.


Carbon pollution is causing the climate crisis. That weird, dirty weather you’ve been having – blame carbon pollution. Where does this pollution come from? The answer is simple: 40% of all carbon pollution in the United States comes from power plants.

If this rule goes into effect, no new dirty, climate-change-causing power plants will be built.
[In the USA, anyway. Emphasis added by me.--light_of_summer]

So, now that you’re up to speed, what do you say? Will you tell the EPA you support the first-ever limit on carbon pollution? It’s easy. Just sign our petition to show your support:


Thank you!
