Connect the Dots and Act to Curb Power Plant Carbon Pollution
Posted May 4, 2012 in Solving Global Warming
Our friends at 350.org have organized a creative day of action tomorrow to connect the dots between extreme weather and climate change. At hundreds of events around the world climate activists will demonstrate what climate change looks like in their community and take a photo of their climate dot. 350.org will collect all the dots and virtually connect them on their web site. Find a local event to join here.
The primary driver of these climate change dots is carbon pollution, particularly carbon pollution from power plants. These black dots are distributed across the country and are currently allowed to dump unlimited quantities of carbon pollution into our atmosphere. And they are doing just that—emitting about 2 billion tons per year nationwide. EPA has recently released a nifty tool that lets you find the carbon pollution dots closest to you. So while we are connecting the dots, let’s be sure to draw the line that links the sources of carbon pollution to the consequences. And tell EPA you want these pollution dots erased as fast as possible.
