Clean Air is a Human Right

Monday Action for the week of 2/27/17: Tell your U.S. Representative to oppose a bill that would remove the very words “greenhouse gases” from the Clean Air Act.

Call or write, but make the sample words below your own, add the ages of the children in your life, tell what makes you care. Calls or handwritten letters are best, but you can copy and paste your message into an email too. Contact information for Congressman McGovern is below, with a link to find your U.S. Rep if you’re in another district.

Dear Congressman McGovern,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. Future generations are depending on us to transition quickly to clean energy for their health and the health of our climate.

HR 637, the “Stopping EPA Overreach Act,” is an attack on the Clean Air Act. It would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, or sulfer hexafluoride emissions.

HR 637 would be a devastating strike against the 2016 Kigali Accord which reduces HFCs by 90% globally and took years of painstaking negotiation to accomplish.

Please speak ferociously against this bill. We need you to fight for our clean air and a healthy future for the children of the world.

Thank you, in the name of future generations.
