Despite superstorms, droughts, floods, and all of the other impacts of a changing climate, power plants can still spew unlimited amounts of CO2 into our atmosphere. Power plants account for 40% of the carbon pollution in the United States, and while we currently protect public health with limits on arsenic, lead, soot and other pollution from power plants, there are no existing federal limits on carbon pollution.
Thursday, February 6 in Washington, D.C., we have the opportunity to change all of that. The Environmental Protection Agency is holding a public hearing to gauge the public's support for limiting carbon pollution from new power plants.
RSVP today to show up and tell EPA you support strong action on climate.
WHO: You, Sierra Club, and climate activists
WHAT: EPA Public Hearing on Limiting Carbon Pollution from New Power Plants
WHEN: Thursday, February 6, noon for our rally and press conference outside, 9:00 a.m. -- 8:00 p.m. for the hearing itself (You can let the EPA know what time of day works best for your schedule.)
WHERE: EPA Headquarters, William Jefferson Clinton East Building, 1201 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, DC (map)
