There are 5 days until the end of the comment period on the EPA's Endangerment Findings report – a study acknowledging that greenhouse gases contribute to air pollution and pose a threat to public health and welfare. Seems like common sense, right?
Well, unsurprisingly, coal and oil companies have been rallying against this finding since it was first published two months ago.
This is our chance to fight back against Big Coal and Oil – and show that there is strong public support to fight global warming.
Click title above to submit a comment to the EPA in support of the Endangerment Findings.
But hurry! The comment period is almost over and we need to submit at least 5,000 comments.
This report is a huge step in the right direction for our country and our planet. If finalized, the Endangerment Findings will give the EPA both the authority and obligation to fight global warming.
The study notes that climate change will have a huge impact on human health – not only through the air we breathe, but also by creating more droughts, more heavy downpours and flooding, more frequent and intense heat waves and wildfires, and further harm to water resources, agriculture, wildlife and ecosystems.
We need action today! Coal and oil companies have spent tens of millions of dollars rallying to prevent this vital first step by President Obama's EPA. If they are successful, we'll lose the green jobs a clean energy economy would generate to the dirty energy interests of the last century.
Can we count on you to help us reach our goal of 5,000 comments in the next 5 days?
Take action NOW and submit a comment to the EPA in support of a report that could change the future of our planet.
Together, we can show that there is strong public support for change and encourage the EPA to take swift, decisive action to regulate global warming gases.
Thank you again for your support.

Interesting Side-Note: I was researching BLM policies regarding Global Warming when I came across this site for BLM employess only (MineInfo) . It is a "training" site where they are teaching their BLM students (and/or shareholders in minining exploration) to "Ignore Global Warming" and you would not believe their reasoning......in so many words, because it will not effect the short-term profitability of their mining explorations!!! Talk about selfish, uncaring motives!
