Dear 5849376,

Our last, best hope for significant progress by President Obama against climate change pollution is the Carbon Rule for existing power plants, introduced in June.

The question is: how strong will Obama administration officials will make the rule and how urgently they will implement it?

We got a clue last week when the EPA announced it was delaying by 45 days the public comment deadline on the rule, caving to a demand of polluting industries and a large group of mostly Republican lawmakers whose goal is to delay the rule as long as possible.1

We can't afford further delays which could push back the deadline to finalize the rule. It's time to act - and act strongly.

In the face of mounting pressure from polluters, and a President who has proved too willing to delay, we need all hands on deck pushing for the strongest possible rule to limit carbon pollution from power plants. Submit a comment now.

Gone are the days when candidate Barack Obama pledged to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. Or the hope that President Obama would truly commit our nation to moving away from fossil fuels.

However, reducing carbon pollution from existing power plants represents an important, significant step forward. And as a priority of the administration for President Obama's last years, it is achievable.

Contrary to the lies of industry and the politicians it owns, what the president has proposed is modest — too modest — in scope, especially next to the urgent facts of our rapidly changing climate.2

But the fact is we still face a massive battle on our hands to make even modest changes to move our nation away from unlimited carbon pollution.

That is where we come in. If you want the president to take action, then you need to encourage him to do it, 5849376. We all do.

Submit a comment now to show support for strong rules to cut carbon pollution.

Thanks for all you do.
