Dear Joe,

You may have seen the study we released this fall on the potential effects of global warming on North American birds.

The news is not good. Based on Audubon’s own exhaustive research, we’ve identified 314 bird species whose futures in the wild could be jeopardized—unless we act now to change course.

Toward that goal, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a critical step to curb carbon pollution from electric power plants, the single largest domestic source of the greenhouse gas pollution that threatens America’s birds and our future.

Please send in your comments to support EPA’s proposed rule to slash greenhouse gas pollution from power plants.

Already, polluting industries are fighting back and we must stand strong in support of EPA’s work. The shift from dirty fossil fuels toward a clean energy economy is a fight we can win—but only if we all do our part.

Limiting emissions from existing power plants won’t solve the global warming problem all by itself, but there is no more critical next step toward averting the worst climate catastrophes. And as we mobilize across the country to protect birds and their habitats for future generations, we need all the help we can get.

Let the EPA know where you stand. Please send in your comments today.
