Use Your Cell Phone Cam to Tell EPA You Want Clean Cars

President Obama is listening. One of the first things his new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator, Lisa Jackson, did was to acknowledge that Americans want cleaner cars; cars that go further on a gallon of gas and emit less global warming pollution.

EPA is now considering whether to reverse the Bush administration's unlawful decision to block California and more than a dozen other states from implementing landmark standards to cut global warming emissions from our vehicles -- and the EPA is asking us, the public, what we think.

This Thursday, we'll be delivering photos of folks from around the country, holding car keys (or bike lock keys or even just your house keys), and saying, "EPA is the key to cleaner cars." Will you add your photo and tell EPA we want clean cars?

EPA is holding the hearing this Thursday to help decide whether it should give California the go-ahead to cut global warming emissions from cars by 30 percent. We know that you probably can't come to Washington, D.C., so we at the Sierra Club will deliver your message directly to Administrator Jackson and others. And we're going to do it in a unique way -- a photo petition -- to make sure that they see for themselves that tens of thousands of Americans from across the country are clamoring for cleaner cars.

Clean cars are a priority for people across the country. Right after President Obama was sworn in, we welcomed the President, and suggested he tackle the Bush Administration's worst decisions quickly. He listened. So please continue the momentum and add your photo today!
