The Supreme Court’s decision in West Virginia v. EPA, released today, has effectively eliminated the US Environmental Protection Agency’s most effective tool for reducing climate pollution from existing fossil fuel burning power plants. This decision is deeply disappointing and dangerous.
As scientists warn that we are running out of time to combat the climate crisis, no one should be making it harder for our government to use effective tools to protect our families and communities. Now, it is up to Congress & the Biden Administration to act quickly to pass bold climate legislation—our future depends on it.
What You Can Do
- Call your senators and tell them we have no more time to waste—they must pass a climate justice bill now!
- Text SENATORS to 69866 or dial 855-980-2275.
Script for your call: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I live in [CITY/STATE]. With the Supreme Court's dangerous decision in West Virginia v. EPA that deals a major blow to the government's ability to tackle the climate crisis, Congress has all the more imperative to take bold climate action. I urge my Senator to use the reconciliation process to pass historic investments in clean energy and climate action that will create millions of good jobs and address systemic injustices. We have no more time to waste -- pass a climate justice bill now! Thank you.
