Tell EPA: Protect Limits on Mercury and Air Toxics

Red Carriage
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is trying to undermine lifesaving limits on mercury and air toxics from power plants.

The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards are a success story. They’ve saved up to 11,000 lives every year. They have dramatically reduced emissions of mercury, a potent neurotoxin that permanently damages babies’ brains, and reduced known carcinogens and toxic acid gases. They have also helped prevent an estimated 130,000 asthma attacks each year.

Can you help? Please send an official public comment to EPA urging them to keep these lifesaving standards fully in place, not undermine or weaken them.
