The largest contributor to carbon pollution in the United States is emissions from fossil fuel burning power plants. Despite this, there is no national limit on pollution from these power plants. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports that our planet is undeniably changing. They also report that global warming, caused by humans, has been impacting the Earth. We can do better. President Obama and the EPA have taken the first step by proposing a standard for climate pollution from new power plants. Don’t let power plant industry leaders attack this important proposal. Show your support and help the U.S. transform dirty energy into a cleaner future.
Our communities, our economy and our planet depend on us to make the right decision — it’s time that we took a stand against carbon pollution. It is unacceptable that in this day and age, America has no national limits on carbon pollution from existing fossil fuel-fired power plants. This means the largest source of carbon pollution in our country goes on unchecked — destroying the environment and putting our health at risk.
We need to support clean energy and also strike back against dangerous fossil fuel power plants. Let’s make a difference and create a greener future. Stand with The Environmental Defense Fund and show your support for strong carbon pollution standards!
Governments from G20 countries are spending $88bn (£55.4bn) to subsidise the search for new oil, gas and coal reserves more than double the amount being spent by the top 20 private oil and gas companies. The UK, for example, is spending $664m for exploration in Russia, Brazil, India and Ghana among other nations, according to the Overseas Development Institute who gathered the data.
