From Earth Justice:

  • I strongly support the EPA’s effort to limit industrial carbon pollution from new power plants.
  • These new clean air standards will protect public health, fight climate change and create jobs and innovation in industries crucial to our competitiveness globally. I urge you to strengthen the standard for large natural gas plants and resist pressure from the polluters to weaken your proposed standard for coal plants. It’s our obligation to protect our communities, as well as our children and future generations, from the effects of climate change.

From Inter faith Power and Light:

  • As a person of faith, I believe it is our moral responsibility, for the benefit of our neighbors and children’s future, to care for all that has been entrusted to us.
  • I urge the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to move forward with the proposed safeguards for new power plants so that we can reduce carbon pollution as quickly as possible to address climate change, protect human health, and care for all of Creation.
  • The Interfaith Power & Light (IPL) community is working to make congregations models of energy stewardship and to lead by example. But our actions alone will not be enough, as power plants are responsible for 40% of carbon pollution.
  • I support Carbon Pollution Standards for New Power Plants.

Unknown source:

  • I applaud the EPA for developing standards to limit carbon pollution from new power plants and strongly support the EPA’s effort to enforce these standards.
  • As a person of faith, I strongly believe that we have a moral obligation to protect and restore God’s creation for future generations. These new clean air standards will be a right step in that direction. They will protect public health, fight climate change and create jobs and innovation in industries crucial to our competitiveness globally.
  • I urge you to resist pressure from the polluters to weaken your proposed standard for coal plants and to strengthen the standard for large natural gas plants. It’s our obligation to protect our communities, as well as our children and future generations, from the effects of climate change.
