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

Lower your thermostat temperature in winter and raise it in summer. In winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees or less during the day (and wear a sweater) and 55 degrees or less at night (and add an extra blanket). Wear less or use a fan instead of air-conditioning on all but the hottest summer days. When you must use air-conditioning, set your thermostat to 78 degrees or more.  More tips...
