I like breathing. And I like knowing that the air I breathe is not contaminated by pollutants and harmful toxics.
Special interest groups and their congressional allies are continuing to try to undo the Clean Air Act and harm the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate harmful carbon pollution.
This reckless behavior puts America’s health and prosperity at risk by gutting the Clean Air Act, and it gives big polluters a free pass to spew carbon dioxide and other pollution without limit.
But the consequences are even greater for you and your family. The air we breathe has a direct effect on our health. Wouldn’t you like your child to be able to take a deep breath and not worry about what is in the air?
The American people deserve the cleaner air, better health, and saved lives that can be made possible by the Clean Air Act. The League will continue to stand up to the special interests and work to ensure our government’s ability to clean up life-threatening pollution.
With your support and activism, the League works every day, not just Earth Day, for clean air, clean energy, and policies that make sense for our families and our future.
Happy Earth Day,
League of Women Voters
