June 23, 2011 President Barack Obama The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

, NW Washington, DC 20500 Dear President Obama, The Clean Air Act provides powerful, cost-effective, and proven tools to combat pollution. It is the best tool in place to combat greenhouse gas pollution on a national scale. It must not be weakened, nor should the ambitious enforcement of its provisions to combat greenhouse gas pollution be deferred. If big polluters and their allies in Congress get their way, your EPA will be prevented from implementing the Clean Air Act to protect our public health and environment by reducing dangerous carbon dioxide pollution that will permanently alter our climate. We need you to provide the leadership you promised. We need you to stand up to big polluters and their congressional allies and publicly state that you will veto any legislative moves to repeal, weaken or delay the Clean Air Acts ability to curb greenhouse gas pollution.
