President Trump and Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler are targeting restrictions on dangerous mercury and toxic pollution from power plants with the intent to overturn the Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) which threatens to boost levels of mercury, soot, and other hazardous pollution in our water, food, and communities.
This move would have devastating health consequences for communities across the country, in particular pregnant women and their babies as mercury pollution has been linked with damage to the brain, nervous system, and to fetal development. As Christians, we know that when God made creation, it was deemed good, though we have too often been the purveyors of destruction of the land, seas, and sky. Our calling is to be stewards of what God has given us and live in harmony with Creation.
Contact the White House & EPA today and ask they protect these environment standards!
