Dirty Air Kills  

Dear San Franciscan,

In October of last year, the Trump Administration announced its plans to roll back the Clean Power Plan. This was a landmark Obama-era initiative to tackle harmful carbon pollution. In my view, the White House’s short-sighted, dangerous decision to dismantle the monumental plan is a direct assault on the health of our nation’s children. Yet again, I see this Administration's policies showing its disregard for the security and health of the American people with their corporate agenda that is choking our skies and accelerating the climate crisis. 

In the face of record wildfires, surging hurricanes, and climbing asthma rates, there can be no question: the damage of carbon pollution jeopardizes the health of our children, the strength of our economy and the security of our nation. Every year, air pollution contributes to more than 20,000 deaths a year in the United States and disproportionately affects low-income families and communities of color. The Clean Power Plan will help curb carbon pollution, and prevent 90,000 asthma attacks and 3,600 premature deaths per year by 2030. 

You can share your thoughts on the Administration’s decision to repeal the Clean Power Plan by attending the EPA’s listening session on February 28th at the San Francisco Main Library or you can also leave a public comment online.

From pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord to gutting environmental protections for our communities to exposing our shores to dangerous drilling, I believe the White House has made clear its complete disinterest in advancing cleaner air, cleaner water, and cleaner energy.

I believe the President’s systematic overhaul of our nation’s most cherished environmental protections will continue to be met with opposition from cities, states, and the American people. House Democrats are proud to join in the fight for the future of our environment and planet against this pro-polluter special interest agenda.
