For 50 years, the Clean Air Act has driven dramatic improvements in air quality across the country. The law requires the federal government to place limits on harmful air pollution, including the greenhouse gases that cause climate change. The Clean Air Act remains the best tool we have to ensure healthy air for all.
But right now, polluting industries are driving efforts to weaken the Clean Air Act by stripping the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to address climate change. Our “State of the Air” 2020 report shows that climate change is already threatening Americans’ health. There is no reason why Congress should block or weaken EPA’s authority to protect our health from climate change.
Tell Congress today — Commit to keeping the Clean Air Act fully intact and oppose any attempts to weaken it.
