Gina McCarthy Confirmed!

Posted: Updated:

Tens of thousands of Moms Clean Air Force members like you sent messages to your senators urging them to confirm President Obama's nominee to lead the EPA.

Today, the U.S. Senate has acted and Gina McCarthy is now the head of the EPA.

Find out how your senators voted here, and thank those that stood up for our public health and a livable climate.

It couldn't have come at a more important time.

President Obama has directed the EPA to put an end to the limitless dumping of carbon pollution from our power plants -- our nation's single largest source. This will be Administrator Gina McCarthy's top priority.

Overwhelming majorities of Americans support the EPA's action. But polluters and their allies in the Senate are already lining up to block and delay these long awaited industrial carbon pollution standards.

Will you send your senators a message saying thanks for confirming Gina McCarthy and let them know that now is the time to act on climate?

Ask your senators to publicly support the president's climate action plan. Let them know that we have a moral obligation to future generations to leave them a planet that's not polluted and damaged.

Thanks for standing up for clean air and our children's health!
