Hi friend,

Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a package of standards to slash carbon, coal ash, mercury, wastewater, and other toxic pollution from power plants. President Biden and EPA administrator Regan deserve thanks for finalizing strong standards that will cut climate pollution and clean up our air and water.

Please find here CAC's Power Plant Pollution Standards Three-Peat message guidance and post on all of your social media platforms with the hashtag #SolutionsforPollution and the graphic. A Spanish-language translation of the Three-Peat guidance can be found here.

Additionally, today is the last day to sign our Carbon Standards Thank You letter! If you are a resident of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or Wisconsin, please add your name to our letter to thank President Biden and EPA Administrator Regan for finalizing strong standards to cut climate pollution! Please click here to sign.

Finally, the Climate Action Campaign, Climate Mayors, C40 Cities, and Elected Officials to Protect America are excited to invite mayors, city council members, and local elected officials to a climate action briefing on the finalized carbon standards on May 7th at 12 PM ET. This briefing aims to provide an opportunity for mayors, city council members, and local government officials to learn about the latest standards and initiatives to combat climate change and promote public health in their communities. Speakers include Patrick Drupp of Sierra Club and Miles Keough of National Association of Clean Air Agencies. To attend this briefing, please register here! Please note while advocates are welcome, the content of this briefing will be tailored to local elected official audiences.

There is still more work to be done to ensure the cleanup of dirty fossil fuel pollution - like setting carbon pollution standards for existing gas-fired power plants and working with environmental justice communities to reduce cumulative impacts – but this is a great day for clean air and our health. President Biden and EPA Administrator Regan continue to deliver on the pollution protections they’ve promised.

Thank you for all of your hard work!
