Speak Out for the EPA Clean Power Plan

Having just offered testimony at the EPA Clean Power Plan hearings in Devner, this article in the NY Times caught my attention: White House Pushes Financial Case for Carbon Rule

The article concludes with this quote from Senator Jeff Sessions directed at EPA administrator Gina McCarthy” “You don’t run the country.  American people run the country.”  All I can say is that the testimony I heard while waiting my turn was an impressive cross section of the American people and showed strong support for the EPA’s plan.

Still we need to continue to speak out.  You can submit written/online comments until October 16, 2014.  Here is how.

Sierra Club prepared the following “how to prepare” targeted at verbal testimony, but much of it applies to written comments as well.

  • How to Prepare My Comments
