Take a breath. Does the air feel fresh? Clean? If so, be thankful, because that isn’t always the case. For more than 40 years, the Clean Air Act has fostered steady progress in reducing air pollution, allowing Americans to breathe easier and live healthier. But for many, air pollution still remains a public health threat.

Many of the protective standards have become outdated or are years overdue. The EPA and the White House are responsible to set strong protections under the Clean Air Act using the latest scientific findings that reduce pollution and save lives.

The EPA needs to move forward on overdue clean air protections that cut dangerous carbon pollution from power plants, clean up smog and haze, reduce toxic emissions and provide cleaner gasoline. These clean air standards will prevent illnesses like asthma attacks, heart disease and even premature death and address the problems contributing to climate change and superstorms like Hurricane Sandy.

Earthjustice uses the power of the law to hold the government accountable for clean air protections. But our victories in court are made stronger when the people demand strong protections.

Please take a moment to write President Obama and tell him that strengthening clean air protections and reducing carbon pollution are important to you!

Everyone has a right to breathe move forward on long overdue health protection

Dear President Obama,

Millions of Americans are being impacted by air pollution every day from coal plants, vehicle exhaust, refineries, incinerators and other many other industrial sources. I urge you to continue to finalize overdue protections for power plants emissions, smog, gasoline, carbon pollution, industrial air toxics and many more.

Finalizing life-saving air pollution protections at the EPA will protect public health, save lives and curb rising temperatures and extreme weather events.

Clean air protections are a priority. Please hold polluters accountable and set strong public health protections and keep us on the path toward cleaner air.
