Clean air should be a fundamental right. Every year, many Americans young and old get sick because of air pollution. Thousands die.

Clean air should be a fundamental right. Every year, many Americans young and old get sick because of air pollution. Thousands die.

But our bodies don't have to be the dumping ground for dirty industries. The technology to dramatically reduce harmful air pollution is available today, and major polluters should be required to use it. Not a decade from now. Now.

We will raise our voices to demand immediate action, because everyone has the right to breathe.

I just can't quite believe that people have to ask for clean air to breathe. Is there an opposing petition?

Roger--I don't think those lobbying to avoid EPA regulations and enforcement are using petitions.
