Action Thursday : Water and Global Warming

The Environmental Protection Agency and U.S Army Corps of Engineers are currently taking public comments on a policy that decides whether or not all of the nation's streams, wetlands and other bodies of water critical to people and wildlife will remain protected from pollution and destruction by the Clean Water Act.

If you are concerned about clean water for drinking, swimming, fish and wildlife habitat and other uses, now is the time to ACT!

Recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court have created confusion about whether certain waters remain protected by the Clean Water Act--the nation's most important law limiting water pollution.

Throughout America, global warming is changing the makeup of habitats and ecosystems and creating dangerous challenges for the animals that live in them.

Your senators will be voting soon on an important global warming bill called the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act (S. 2191), and THEY NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

The Climate Security Act would not only be the biggest step ever taken to reduce global warming pollution, it also sets aside billions for wildlife conservation.
