King #Coal wants to keep poisoning us. Support the EPA's efforts to reign in soot pollution:

Dear Administrator Jackson, I urge the EPA to protect the health of Americans by adopting strong clean air standards for soot pollution. Soot pollution costs lives: Particulate emissions from coal-fired power plants, automobiles, and other sources contribute to heart and respiratory disease, causing thousands of premature deaths each year. Moreover, soot disproportionately harms the health of America's most vulnerable, including children, pregnant women, seniors, and the poor. Reducing soot pollution will protect the environment, improve public health, and save billions of dollars in health care costs. Please act to protect my family and all Americans from dirty air by setting stringent soot pollution standards. Sincerely,
