Stop Smog: Join the call-in day for clean air!

Share this page on FacebookShare this page on TwitterShare this page with other services

Walking or riding to school should be the safest thing a child does all day -- it certainly shouldn't give her asthma. But with one in three American children living in places with dangerous levels of smog and traffic, far too many families must deal with respiratory diseases like asthma, and the inhalers that come with it.

With just two minutes and one phone call, you can fight smog and bring thousands of Americans -- maybe even your own neighborhood --- one step closer to cleaner, healthier air.

Today's national call-In day won't be a success without callers like you. Contact the White House at (202) 456-1111 and tell them you support cleaner tailpipe standards!

The administration is considering new regulations that would improve the gasoline refining process and reduce toxic tailpipe emissions, meaning less pollution, less smog, and healthier communities. Yet once again, Big Oil opposes something good for Americans. They believe that bigger and bigger profits are more important than your health -- even when, like today, the rules in question would cost them less than one penny per gallon.

Stand up to Big Oil's immoral greed -- take two minutes to call the White House today at (202) 456-1111 and tell them:

  • Supporting the strong "Tier 3" cleaner tailpipe standards is one of the first steps President Obama can take in his second term to secure his clean energy legacy and protect our public health.
  • One in three American children live in areas where air pollution levels can be dangerous. Cleaner-burning gasoline will mean less smog-forming pollution from car tailpipes -- giving Americans cleaner air to breathe, saving lives, and reducing asthma attacks.
  • A study by Navigant Economics stated that the health benefits from these standards would have an estimated value of $11 billion per year by 2030 and installing new refinery technology would create more than 5,000 permanent jobs and 24,500 construction jobs.
