Attend an EPA Listening Session in Seattle: Carbon Limits for Power Plants

Thursday, November 7th, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Nov 7th 2013

This summer, President Obama committed the U.S. to be a global leader on curbing climate disruption and proposed that we start by limiting carbon pollution from power plants.

Currently, there are no limits on the amount of carbon pollution spewed into the air by power plants like PSE's aging Colstrip power plant in Montana. We can no longer to afford to rely on dirty, imported coal power. Coal power costs our wallets, health and the environment too much. It's time to fully transition from dirty coal to clean energy!

The EPA is hosting listening sessions to gauge support for taking action to limit carbon pollution from power plants. One of these sessions is in Seattle on November 7. There will be strong opposition to these new limits from the fossil fuel industry, so we need your help to show strong support for bold action to address climate disruption

RSVP today for the Seattle listening session to take action for climate protection!

We've known for decades that carbon wrecks our health and our climate, and power plants are the nation's top source. Their pollution fuels climate disruption -- it makes wildfires burn hotter and droughts last longer. Warm summer weekends become scorching heatwaves and floods become disasters. Unlimited carbon pollution means more smog, more asthma attacks, and more climate disruption.

Now that President Obama has made tackling climate-destroying carbon pollution a priority we need to make sure there's a strong show of public support -- RSVP for the listening session today!
