Tell the EPA Where You Stand

May 4, 2017

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is asking for public input on what environmental rules should be changed or scrapped.

Yes, you read that correctly … the EPA is asking the public to weigh in on how the agency could roll back climate and clean air policies, public health safeguards, the Clean Power Plan, visibility protections in Wilderness areas, and other important policies that AMC has advocated in support of for decades.

AMC weighed in already, suggesting that the agency should continue to support sound science in its decision-making process, and that the mission of the EPA to protect human health and the environment should transcend party politics.

Because you love the outdoors, you should weigh in too!

Let the EPA know that you care about protecting clean air and water, safeguarding Wilderness areas and acting to curb climate change.

We’ve made it easy by pre-addressing a letter that you can add your name to and send immediately to the EPA. Customized letters have the greatest impact though.

  • Views from Cardigan Mountain are made possible thanks to clean air policies
  • Views in the White Mountain National Forest depend on clean air
  • Mountain air quality monitoring by AMC has documented improved air under the Clean Air Act
  • Clean Water is necessary for wildlife and people
  • Acid Mine Drainage is a legacy in the Mid-Atlantic that the EPA is working to clean up
