Protect Pennsylvania from Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Target: Governor Tom Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania

Goal: Protect Pennsylvania from greenhouse gas emissions and deadly global warming by joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

Pennsylvania is one step closer to controlling greenhouse gas emissions in the state and lessening the destructive impact of big energy corporations. If the state joins the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the government will have the authority to charge power plants for the pollution they emit. This will help put a check on large corporations and the destruction they cause to the state’s air, land, and water.

Several other states are already part of this initiative and have seen economic and environmental benefits as a result. Governor Tom Wolf has stated that he plans to veto a bill that would require legislative approval to join the consortium because any such environmental protection measure will not pass a Republican-controlled Senate.

While critics cry that this action is a breach of governmental power, conservationists argue that it is a much-needed step to protecting our planet. Sign the petition to show your support for Governor Wolf and his commitment to joining the consortium by 2022.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Wolf,

Thank you for listening to the citizens across the state who are advocating for cleaner air, land, and water. By joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, Pennsylvania will now have the power to charge energy companies for the pollution they produce. It is our hope that this would cause these companies to think twice about the pollutants they leak into our planet.

I hope that you hold true to your commitment to joining the consortium by 2022. Pennsylvania, and the United States, need to finally hold big energy companies accountable.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
