Industrial Carbon Pollution-New EPA Safeguards

Now’s the time…we have the opportunity to take a stand to clean up industrial carbon pollution which fuels climate change. As a person of faith, join the effort to let the EPA know you support the New Industrial Carbon Pollution Standards.

 “Interfaith Power and Light applauds the EPA’s landmark action to limit industrial carbon pollution from new power plants. This is an important step toward safeguarding the health of our communities, our climate, and our children’s future.” –The Rev. Canon Sally G. Bingham, President and Founder of Interfaith Power and Light

There are currently no national limits on the industrial carbon pollution coming from sources like power plants. The EPA is working to safeguard our health by reducing this carbon pollution and lessening the impact of climate change. Fossil fuel burning power plants currently emit more than two billion tons of carbon pollution and other toxic pollutants into the air each year.

The EPA’s new standards to put limits on industrial carbon pollution from new power plants show us that the 40-year old Clean Air Act is still an invaluable tool to carry out our call to be stewards of God’s Creation and to serve the least among us.

Take Action!
