Tell Your State Senator: Don’t Burn Our Future

20130822noburnGAIA (Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives) has put out an alert to prevent AB 1126 from becoming law in California. The bill would make it easier for highly-polluting facilities to get climate protection credits by burning wood, paper, and other organic materials. They claim that the greenhouse gases that result are “carbon neutral” – even though these emissions have exactly the same impact on the climate. The bill also threatens to increase pollution in our communities, skirting around regulations that created to protect public health. Take action of you agree polluters shouldn’t get climate protection credits for incinerating waste! Click here for the full message from GAIA, with suggested talking points to explain why you want your senator to vote NO on AB 1126.
