CREDO: "The EPA's first ever rule limiting carbon pollution—known as the Carbon Pollution Standard—applies only to unlikely-to-be-built, new coal-fired power plants. It is riddled with loopholes allowing new sources of pollution including some new coal plants. It does nothing to reduce carbon pollution from much more significant existing sources. The EPA will now accept public comments on the rule—and as it weighs the public's reaction, we need to show that we expect much, much more from EPA to regulate carbon pollution." >>>Take Action

Not to mention how delicious and nutritious fresh-picked fruits and vegetables are! More tips...
