Here are a few things I think we can all agree on:
- It's good when we have cleaner air.
- It's good when, because of that cleaner air, we see real health benefits -- like fewer asthma attacks for the 6.3 million American kids who suffer.
- It's good when we can get that cleaner air in a way that actually saves families money -- often thousands of dollars per year.
Here's one more statement I think you'll agree with: It makes no sense for the White House to threaten this progress, and we have to say so.
These standards are working -- a comprehensive review just last year showed us exactly that. Our air is cleaner, people are healthier, our cars go farther on a gallon of gas, and families' hard-earned money goes further at the pump ... even the auto industry agreed to the plan, and is adhering to it.
But out of nowhere, the White House has demanded a "review" of these successful standards. It's nothing more than an excuse to pave the way for weakening them, which doesn't help anyone but big polluters and their lobbyists in Washington, DC.
We can't let it happen -- and we have a week, starting today, to make our public comments heard. Let's do exactly that:
