Action Alert from Interfaith Power and Light
Not only has the Senate failed to take up comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation, now, incredibly, senators are trying to stop the EPA from doing its job.
Sen. Rockefeller of West Virginia has introduced a bill to block the EPA from protecting us from global warming pollution. In 2007 the Supreme Court ordered the EPA to take action — to decide whether global warming pollution was harmful to public health. The EPA found that it does indeed present a threat to public health, and issued the "endangerment finding" which was adopted with overwhelming public support including 300,000 comments. Hundreds of you also supported this action, but now, senators want to overrule the voters and the Supreme Court and stop the EPA's crackdown on polluters.
It's time for people of faith to stand up to the polluters, and stand up for our families, neighbors, and future generations, and tell our elected officials what we think about their dirty air acts.
