The EPA Seeks Historic Proposal to Protect Clean Air

In the last couple of months, more than 2 million Americans have submitted comments in support of the EPA's efforts to reduce carbon pollution. The proposal has received more comments than any agency has ever received. Carbon pollution is linked to significant health hazards like asthma-inducing smog. Carbon pollution is a pandemic in the US with half of Americans (158 million) living in counties with unacceptable air pollution levels.

Big Coal has done everything in its power to stop the EPA from curbing carbon pollution. There is currently no federal limit on how much life-threatening carbon pollution can be spewed by coal plants. Infamous corporate polluters like the Koch Brothers want to keep it that way. This climate denying duo are amongst that group of billionaires who put their profits ahead of human health and use their fortunes to undermine efforts to address pollution.
