Good news! With your help, on Thursday, the Senate voted to reject Senator Murkowski's "Dirty Air Act" – a proposal that would have destroyed 40 years of progress on clean energy by gutting the Clean Air Act and stripping the EPA of its power to regulate the pollution that causes climate change.
The vote was close – 53 to 47 – but your calls and letters made the difference, putting the pressure on Congress to do the right thing.
Thanks to you, we won this fight – but the oil that continues to gush into the Gulf of Mexico daily is a vivid reminder of the continued danger of depending on fossil fuels. With your help, we will continue to push for comprehensive clean energy and global warming legislation that will give us greater economic security, reduce pollution and global warming, and transition America to a cleaner energy future.
Thank you again for your activism and support. We will be in touch in the days and weeks to come with more ways of getting involved.
