“I think about all of my children – Maggie, Julie and Dan – when I go to work every morning. Because after all, the work we do is about the generations that will come after us, and the planet that we will leave behind. As I mentioned, I have a lot of hope for the next generation. And it’s my goal to make sure that we get out of the way and let them do what we know they will do – which is to ensure that we have a sustainable economy and a protected environment.”
Gina McCarthy, EPA Administrator, July 31, 2013

In case you missed our own Climate Mama’s statement to the EPA Listening Session in New York City on October 23rd, here is a link to Harriet’s comments on the Moms Clean Air Force Blog. For many of these same reasons that Harriet addresses, clean air, a sustainable climate and a livable future, make sure to join us for this call on Thursday, November 14th.
Sign up today and let Gina McCarthy know that as a concerned Climate Mama and Papa, you want the EPA to use the full weight of it’s authority to help us solve the climate crisis in every way that it can. While we don’t have the billions of dollars that industry has to fight against stronger climate pollution control standards, we do have the truth, reality and our love and concern for our children and for their livable future on our side. We hope that eventually, industry will stop fighting with single mindness for it’s quarterly earnings, and instead factor in a healthy and livable future for all our children into it’s bottom line and let the EPA do it’s job to protect our environment and our health.
