• A message from President Obama: Raise your voice on climate change

    Join the fight.

    President Obama needs your help to combat climate change. He sent a message asking OFA supporters to raise their voices in support of his proposed EPA standards for carbon pollution from existing power plants.

    Read his note:

    Friend --

    I just proposed a plan that cuts carbon pollution from existing power plants 30 percent by 2030.

    That's a responsible, common-sense step to address climate change.

    But we're already getting intense opposition from polluters and special interests who like things the way they are.

    OFA is fighting back to show there's broad support for these new EPA standards. If you want action to combat climate change, you can add your name today.

    Climate change is happening, and it's happening now. As a president and as a father, I feel a moral responsibility to do something about it. The world our children grow up in depends on what we do about it.

    Carbon pollution is threatening our health right now. Over half of all Americans already live in areas where air pollution too often makes it unhealthy to breathe -- it's time to cut carbon pollution the same way we already regulate toxic chemicals in our air.

    Modernizing our power plants so they pollute less will also spark homegrown clean energy innovation, creating jobs and growing our economy.

    I'm not going to wait to take action on this.

    Right now, big polluters are going to do everything they can to derail this momentum. They've been fighting these EPA standards since before they were even announced.

    Your voice on this issue is the most powerful thing you've got in this fight. I need you to use it.

    OFA is stepping up and gathering names in support of these EPA standards -- you can add your name:
