The Trump Administration is proposing to repeal the Clean Power Plan—the nation’s first and only federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants—before it has even take effect! The Plan limits dirty power plant pollution that contaminates our air, warms the cool ocean waters necessary for a healthy ecosystem, and intensifies and increases the frequency of dangerous storms. Tell EPA not to roll back the Clean Power Plan!

Tell Senator Collins: No Drilling in the Arctic
Senator Collins recently voted for a tax bill that contains a provision to allow oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to help pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. If enacted, the ANWR provision would reverse decades of protection for one of the world’s most majestic landscapes. Contact Senator Collins and voice your disappointment for her vote. There is still time to urge her to work to protect ANWR.
Defend the EPA!
The Trump Administration has proposed cutting the EPA budget, launching an assault on the health and environmental safeguards that protect us from toxic chemicals, contaminated drinking water, and climate change pollution. Sign the petition (to be delivered to Maine's Congressional delegation) to protect EPA's programs that keep Maine's air and water clean.
Oppose Dangerous EPA Nominee
President Trump is handing key administration positions to climate deniers and allies of the fossil fuel industry, and Maine families and our air and water will pay the price. Urge Senators Collins and King to oppose former chemical industry lobbyist Michael Dourson to head the EPA Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.
