Don't Let the Trump EPA Push Mercury Standards Out of Orbit

Don't Let the Trump EPA Push Mercury Standards Out of Orbit

The Trump EPA announced plans to go after the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards — another working, life-saving policy that nobody actually wants to get rid of except Trump, Acting EPA Administrator Wheeler and their coal baron friends.

Mercury is a dangerous pollutant that is released into our air mostly from the burning of coal in power plants. Yet the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards have been in place and working for the last several years. So well that even the power sector doesn’t want changes to them. The standards have saved thousands of lives and prevented thousands of heart attacks and asthma attacks. So they’re probably something we should keep around.

Send a message to Administrator Wheeler to demand he abandon all proposed changes to the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards.
