Huge News for the Climate
What a roller coaster. Yesterday, the news coming out of the Senate was just flat out scary for the climate. Mitch McConnell, soon to be the Senate majority leader, announced his plans to make building the Keystone Pipeline and dismantling the EPA cornerstones of the Republican agenda.
Then, just last night, news broke that President Obama has negotiated the first ever climate treaty with China in secret.
This is huge. The United States and China are the two largest emitters of global warming pollution on the planet. We have the momentum. But President Obama's proposed rules to fight climate change will fail unless they're backed up by a huge wave of public support
The public comment period for President Obama's clean power rules, which would retire the oldest and dirtiest coal plants in the country, ends in 18 days.
Sign here to help demonstrate overwhelming support for Obama's executive actions to fight the climate crisis.
The proposed clean power rules are the biggest action any American President has ever taken to curb climate change. If implemented, they could have a dramatic effect on how we produce energy and reduce our power-sector's emissions of global warming pollution by over 30% from the 2005 peak levels.
