Help Destroy Economy Through Carbon Regulation, MoveOn Urges

MoveOn.org wants its followers to help destroy the U.S. economy by asking them to pack an EPA hearing Monday on regulating carbon dioxide –the stuff that comes out of your lungs– as an alleged pollutant.

The latest email to members calls carbon dioxide “global warming pollution,” which is a bald-face lie:

 

Dear MoveOn member,

For the first time ever, the Environmental Protection Agency is considering a limit on global warming pollution.

On Monday in Arlington, the EPA will hold one of its only public hearings to weigh the support and opposition to this idea. Big oil and coal companies will be there in force to oppose it.

Can you be there to show the massive public support for climate action? Our friends at Sierra Club are holding a high-profile press conference outside the hearing.

WHAT: Show your support for limits on global warming pollution
WHEN: Monday, May 18th, 12 noon
WHERE: Hyatt Regency Crystal City at National Airport (in the Potomac Room)
2799 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, Virginia 22202
Map: [LINK REMOVED] or free shuttle from Crystal City Metro Stop

We’re going to keep working to make sure Congress passes the strongest and boldest clean energy jobs plan possible, but EPA action will pressure Congress to pass the clean energy jobs bill quickly.

Under George W. Bush, the EPA decided not to limit global warming pollution. But now the EPA is considering a reversal of that decision. With powerful oil and coal companies fighting hard, this will only happen if we all show up.

Thank you for all you do.
