The nation needs cleaner cars to keep our families healthy. Gasoline-powered cars contribute to air pollution and drive climate change, which poses a major threat to lung health. Transitioning to cleaner engines and zero-emission vehicles will help curb climate change and improve public health at the same time.
We need the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set strict limits on carbon pollution from new cars, SUVs and pickup trucks to set the nation on the road to a zero-emission future.
Join the American Lung Association and call on U.S. EPA to ensure cleaner cars.
Dear Administrator Regan:
We urge the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set strong greenhouse gas standards for light-duty vehicles that drive the transition to a zero-emission future.
Climate change puts everyone at risk, including my family. To help protect our health from the impacts of air pollution and climate change, the nation needs to transition to zero-emission transportation.
Please finalize near-term greenhouse gas standards for light-duty vehicles that are at least as strong as the standards that the SAFE rule replaced. Then, please act quickly to set stronger standards out to at least 2030 that drive the transition to zero-emission transportation nationwide.
