To the Editor:

I strongly back the resolution now before our city leaders urging the Environmental Protection Agency to move swiftly to use the Clean Air Act in reducing carbon in our atmosphere to no more than 350 parts per million.

For four decades, the Clean Air Act has protected the air we breathe through a proven, comprehensive, successful system of pollution control that saves lives and creates economic benefits far exceeding its costs. And today the Act is our best hope to stem the tide of climate change. 
I hope our city leaders will take this important opportunity and make [INSERT CITY NAME] a leader in the fight for clean air and against the increasingly urgent challenge of climate change.
