Call, email, tweet or write your governor while you're enjoying a pairing or dancing your arse off. Tell them, "I support the Clean Power Plan!"
ABOUT THE CLEAN POWER PLAN
We're throwing the party… but it’s up to YOU to take action –which is now more important than ever! The Environmental Protection Agency recently released new standards for coal-fired power plants, dubbed the Clean Power Plan, which –for the first time— will limit dangerous carbon pollution. But these pollution limits are threatened, and we must act to defend and support them. Our friends at POW have made it easy for you to stand up for winter and the winter sports you love, by contacting your governor and telling them you support the Clean Power Plan. It's as simple a dialing, emailing, tweeting or writing your governor. Tell them you care about winter, and that you support the Clean Power Plan!
