Save Yellowstone from Big Coal!

Yellowstone National park is a national treasure, home to grizzly bears and some of the last herds of free-roaming bison. Every year, over 3 million people visit to see these animals, to watch Old Faithful blow its top, and to view the sunset over Yellowstone Falls.1

Unfortunately, dirty coal pollution is ruining the view. Haze from a nearby coal-fired plant makes it hard to enjoy these sunsets, or take in the majesty of the roaming bison herds.

Right now, the EPA is taking comments on a plan to cut nearby coal pollution, but they need your support. Tell the EPA to protect Yellowstone National Park from dirty coal pollution today.

Yellowstone is as special to Americans as baseball and apple pie, but coal executives are fighting the EPA’s plan to protect the park. They’d rather tarnish its beauty with toxic emissions than put pollution controls on a coal-fired power plant in Montana.

Let’s show Big Coal that we won’t let them destroy one of our country’s national treasures by sending 30,000 comments to the EPA. Send your comment now!

Yellowstone was America’s first National Park – founded in 1872. We need to make sure it stays as pristine now, as it was then. Strong pollution standards will ensure our kids and grandkids experience the park the way it was intended — clean, clear, and unspoiled.

Make sure the next generation can experience Old Faithful and Yellowstone Falls without looking through toxic air. Urge the EPA to protect Yellowstone National Park today.

Thanks for all you do for the environment,
