Citizens' Hearing on EPA's Carbon Rule
Wednesday, June 13, 2012 10:03 AM
Hello, I hope this email
finds you well.
If you are free the evening of Tuesday, June 19th the Clean Air Council would love
to have you join us at Philadelphia's unofficial citizens' hearing on EPA's proposal to
limit carbon pollution from new power plants for the first time.
For the approximately 15% of Pennsylvania children that have suffered from
asthma, this new standard, which will reduce pollution by 123 billion pounds
annually, will also help reduce missed school days, severe
asthma attacks, and hospital visits.
Congress wants to defeat this rule, but we cannot let that happen!
We are asking
people concerned with climate change, air quality, and health to come out and speak
for 3-5 minutes in "open mic/town hall" format or to just stop in, listen, and
learn more! Any testimony you give, oral or written, will be submitted to EPA as an official comment.
If you can share with anyone who might want to speak or ask
questions I would appreciate it! We are hoping for a great turnout so any
assistance in getting the word out is greatly
