One down, but not out, and one more Seditious Governor makes seven. Sign here to tell ALL governors, to act on climate by complying with President Obama's Clean Power Plan.
Good news: Just after we put up a billboard in Madison, Wisc., telling Gov. Scott Walker that the Clean Power Plan (CPP) is in the best interest for his state -- he dropped out of the presidential race citing falling public opinion and a need to focus on his job as Governor. He has yet to promise to comply with the CPP, but he's talking in the right direction. And we're hoping to repeat that small victory soon as we put up a billboard in Louisiana's capitol asking Gov. Bobby Jindal to act on climate.
Bad news: Calling it an "unlawful" overreach by the federal government, Gov. Chris Christie slammed President Obama's Clean Power Plan, which aims to cut global warming pollution from power plants across America. Christie’s top environmental regulator, even requested a stay of implementation and a proceeding for reconsideration of the rules.1
New Jersey's opposition comes after 15 other states, most of them in the south and midwest, petitioned a federal court in Washington last month to delay implementation of the new rules. That prompted 15 other states, including New York, to issue statements supporting the plan. If you're keeping score, that means the fight for the future of the clean power is evenly divided with seven Seditious Governors leading the fight to delay action our planet needs. Please click here to tell all Governors to take action on our our climate and public health and comply with the Clean Power Plan?
To stop climate change and make the plan to cut global warming pollution from power plants work, we need all 50 states to do more than just comply with the Clean Power Plan, we need them to dramatically exceed it.
Our campaign is WORKING. This month we placed digital billboards - funded by members like you - in downtown Madison where it was be seen by an estimated 417,078 drivers every day. And soon so our ads can run for a whole week where they will be seen by an estimated 82,500 people in Louisiana's capitol.
But not everyone is convinced yet. If we want to win, we have to get EVERYONE on board -- starting with you. Before it's too late, will you click here to tell all Governors to take action on our our climate and public health and comply with the Clean Power Plan?
Thanks for all you do,
