It's a proposal from Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski and other Big Oil and Coal allies that would bail out big polluters by gutting the Clean Air Act and stripping President Obama's EPA of its ability to fight global warming.
Tell your Senators to say no to Big Oil and Coal's plan to stall our transition to a clean energy economy.
Last month more than 400,000 Americans submitted comments in favor of an EPA proposal to limit emissions from the biggest global warming polluters. But Senators like Lisa Murkowski would rather listen to the Big Oil and Coal lobbyists1 who want to strip the EPA of its power to regulate global warming pollution.
Let your Senators know that a vote for Senator Murkowski's proposal is a vote for big polluters and against our economy, our health, and our safety.
This bailout for big polluters is being crafted in secret by Washington lobbyists working for Big Oil and Coal.2 It will move America backward and halt the creation of clean energy jobs, just when we need them the most.
Instead of looking for ways to delay action, Senators need to finalize comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation as soon as possible.
