I'm Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley. President Obama is implementing tough new rules to reduce carbon pollution from existing power plants. But Republicans in Congress are threatening the Environmental Protection Agency to try and stop this plan.1
President Obama's proposed new rule to reduce carbon pollution is exactly what we need.
It's about clean air. Our children's health depends on it.
It's about climate change. The planet is heating up, and we have to reverse it.
It's about time. We must act before it's too late.
Republicans in Congress are peddling junk science, pretending climate change isn't happening, and acting on behalf of the Koch brothers and the coal industry.
Please join me in standing with President Obama—and tell Republicans in Congress to back off.
–Senator Jeff Merkley
