Daily Eco Tip #7 — Join Environmentalists for Obama.
Apologies for not posting Daily Eco Tip #7 yesterday on actual Earth Day. I was out enjoying mother nature and was nowhere near a computer. So join Environmentalists for Obama and this is what that kind of change looks like:
— Setting the first-ever national standards on mercury and other forms of toxic air pollution from power plants, which will prevent up to 11,000 premature deaths, 4,700 heart attacks, and 130,000 asthma attacks every year when fully implemented
— Developing fuel efficiency standards that will nearly double fuel economy for cars and light trucks by 2025 — and save families thousands of dollars at the pump and save our country millions of barrels of oil
— Establishing safeguards to cut interstate soot and smog-forming pollution from power plants by more than 50 percent and improve air quality for more than 75 percent of Americans
— Investing more in clean energy than ever before — and putting us on track to double our use of renewable sources by the end of the year
— Signing one of the largest expansions of wilderness protections in a generation, setting aside more than 2 million acres of land
