LEAGUE LAUDS ADMINISTRATION’S BOLD ACTION AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE
Carbon Pollution Standard for Existing Power Plants is Life-Saving Measure Says League
City, State – This week the Obama Administration proposed a carbon pollution standard for existing power plants, a critical and bold step in the fight against climate change.
“We are pleased that today the President has taken these additional steps as his Administration confronts one of the greatest challenges of our lifetime: climate change,” said [President Name], President of the League of Women Voters of [local League name].
Regulating carbon pollution from power plants, the largest unlimited source of carbon pollution, is the key to protecting Americans from climate change.

The League is glad to stand beside the Administration as they work to finalize these historic regulations.
“The residents of [state/city/county] and across the country are strongly in favor of reducing the deadly effects that carbon pollution has on the health of our children and our environment,” said [President name]. “The League of Women Voters of [local/state League name] is eager to spread the word about these life-saving measures to protect our children, our community and our world from the damaging effects of climate change. We look forward to having conversations with the residents of our local community about this important issue.”
