To the Editor:
Our nation’s most important pollution law — the Clean Air Act — is under attack, and our city has the opportunity to take a stand. Some in Congress want to repeal virtually any federal or state protections against the buildup of dangerous carbon pollution. They want to give big polluters free rein to continue dumping unlimited amounts of dangerous carbon pollution into our air, threatening our health and perilously warming the planet.
Our city council is considering an important resolution in support of the Clean Air Act, a resolution urging the Environmental Protection Agency to move swiftly to use the Act to reduce carbon in our atmosphere to no more than 350 parts per million.
I strongly urge our city leaders to stand up to big polluters and for clean air, a safe climate and a livable future for [INSERT CITY NAME] and our planet.
