The EDF is behind a campaign to help remind political leaders that clean air is something that the majority of Americans support.
Democrats, Republicans and Independents have very different visions for America, but one thing they all agree on is that Everyone deserves the right to breathe clean, healthy air. Support for clean air comes from 58% of Republicans, 79% of Democrats and 54% of those polled with no party affiliation. The majority of voters of all political stripes trust EPA more than Congress to set clean air standards. By a 65 to 30 percent margin, voters agree that we can set stricter standards for cleaner air.
Despite the popular will, polluters and their Republican allies in Congress are waging an unprecedented, radical assault on the life-saving clean air protections that keep our families and communities safe.
Join the EDF in sending a powerful message to our political leaders: We stand together for strong clean air standards.
Share this post with others and go to the EDF site to sign the Clean Air Pledge and commit to taking action this week (August 15-19).
