PETITION TO PRESIDENT BIDEN AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
Dear President Biden and Administrator Regan:
We are parents, seniors, doctors, young people, small business owners, and families living in communities across America, all concerned about power plant pollution in our neighborhoods and the impacts of climate change.
We are extremely grateful to you for the work you have done since 2021 to tackle the climate crisis and clean up our air, including:
- Working to set stronger standards for dangerous pollution like mercury, methane, soot, wastewater and other power plant pollution.
- Taking the initial steps to slash carbon pollution from new and existing power plants.
Climate change is an immense threat to our communities and the wildlife and landscapes we cherish. Changing temperatures and increased extreme weather are impacting migration patterns, limiting available habitats and food sources, and changing wildlife behaviors in ways we can’t always predict. The health of our wildlife, lands, and water are at risk.
As President of the United States and Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you both have vast responsibility and authority to protect our health.
Our health – and our climate – can’t wait! It’s time to act boldly and swiftly to finalize and implement the strongest possible pollution standards by May of 2024 to meet your climate, public health and environmental justice goals.
