Tell The Biden Administration: Do Everything You Can to Cut Power Plant Emissions

Send Your Message

The Supreme Court just issued a deeply damaging ruling that narrows the EPA’s ability to limit climate-busting carbon emissions from power plants—constraining the agency’s ability to set effective standards where they’re needed most.

Even worse, this aggressive decision also announced a broad and dangerous major questions' doctrine that could hamper our government’s ability to protect us from dangers like unsafe working conditions, tainted food and drugs, and other threats.

But all is not lost: EPA still has authority to rein in pollution from the power sector.

The power sector is our second-largest source of carbon pollution. We can’t stop climate change without pushing the power sector to reach net-zero emissions by 2035.

This is a leadership moment like no other for the White House and Congress.

The Supreme Court just issued a deeply damaging ruling that narrows the EPA’s ability to limit climate-busting carbon emissions from power plants—constraining the agency’s ability to set effective standards where they’re needed most.

In other words: This leaves the EPA in the climate fight but makes it harder to win it.

Even worse, this aggressive decision also announced a broad and dangerous 'major questions' doctrine that could undermine the federal government’s ability to develop regulations and safeguards for things like worker safety, public health, and food and drug safety.

But all is not lost: This decision still leaves space and authority for EPA to rein in pollution from the power sector.

The power sector is our second-largest source of carbon pollution. We can’t stop climate change without pushing the power sector to reach net-zero emissions by 2035.

This is a leadership moment like no other for the White House and Congress.

So, call on President Biden, the EPA, and Congress to act NOW to rein in pollution from the power sector, pass critical clean energy legislation, and give us a fighting chance to stop climate change!

So, Tell President Biden, EPA, & Congress: Cut Climate-Busting Power Plant Emissions and Invest in Our Clean Energy Future!
Tell Biden's EPA and Congress: Do Everything You Can to Cut Climate-Busting Power Plant Emissions and Expand Clean Energy
