Americans deserve clean air.
We vow to protect clean car standards that not only put more money in our pockets, they also reduce pollution that affects all Americans’ health, especially the most vulnerable among us.
Twenty-five million Americans – including more than 6 million children – suffer from asthma. The clean car standards are the most effective policy we have on the books to reduce air pollution and fight climate change that makes unhealthy air even more dangerous.
Transportation is now the country’s largest single source of the carbon pollution; cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks are the largest source of pollution within this sector.
Our goals are to:
- Stop efforts by automakers, the fossil fuel industry and our government to roll back these standards, which would expose millions of Americans to more harmful carbon pollution and jeopardize the great progress our country has made in cleaning up our air.
- Protect the rights of states to lead on clean car standards. Thirteen states, plus the District of Columbia, representing 113 million people and over a third of the automotive market, have led the charge on advancing clean car standards, leading to the strong national standards we have now.
