DONATE Tell Trump’s EPA:
I support the Clean Power Plan!

Save Clean Power PlanPresident Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt officially proposed to repeal the historic Clean Power Plan, our very best chance at reversing climate change by cutting dangerous carbon pollution from power plants. This outrageous move is a giveaway to coal companies, utilities, and other big polluters that threatens the health and safety of the American people. But Trump’s EPA is required to accept public comments on this disastrous plan — so we must act now to save these groundbreaking safeguards while we still can. Be one of the 150,000 activists we need to tell the Trump administration: Don’t destroy the Clean Power Plan!
