EPA: We Want Stronger Rules to Combat Climate Change E-mail

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

 

Eco Tip

Unplug appliances when not in use. Your electronics—computers, TVs, phone chargers—use energy even when they're turned off. Stand-by power can account for as much as 20% of home energy use. Save both energy and money by unplugging your devices, or put them on a power strip that you can turn off when they are not in use.  More tips...
