As you may have heard Tuesday, June 25, President Obama laid out his national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change, and lead global efforts to fight it. This is our moment. Can you help to respond to the naysayers in your area papers?
There is a story or blog in your area so far that needs responses:

Obama’s new power-plant rules will harm an Ohio economy dependent on coal: letter to the editor
It is easy as 1-2-3 to write a letter, and it will get the attention of our lawmakers that this is an important issue!
Email me for any help.
Thanks for all you do!
