Petition to EPA to Phase Out GHG Pollution:
Is it still needed after the Schumer/Manchin “Inflation Reduction Act”?
Is it still possible after the Supreme Court’s ruling in West Virginia v EPA?
September 8, 2022
A special event for allied organizations and Citizens’ Climate Lobby Chapters in support of CPR Initiative Petition to Phase Out Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Pollution to Restore a Stable and Healthy Climate. Visit our Campaign page here.↗
Climate Protection and Restoration Initiative (CPR Initiative) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to protecting and restoring a viable climate system, starting with a phase out of greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution.
The clean energy investments in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) are an important step forward, but we know well that far more is needed to ensure a sustainable future. Our citizens’ petition to EPA is more important than ever. Together, we must demand a phase out of GHG pollution without further delay. Get the FAQs on the Petition here.↗
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (USA), as well as Citizens’ Climate International, and Citizens’ Climate Lobby Canada, have already endorsed the Petition, as well as dozens of other organizations across the US. See who has endorsed and sponsored here.↗
Renowned climate scientist, James E. Hansen, is a Lead Petitioner, while Cathy Orlando, Director of Citizens’ Climate Lobby Canada, is a key sponsor. Learn about CPR Initiative’s leadership here.↗
This event is free, but limited to 500 participants, so registration is strongly encouraged. The Event Zoom Link will be provided in the registration confirmation email.
