Deadline to Submit Public Comment on Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative Quickly Approaching – Send a Message of Support Here

The state Environmental Quality Board (EQB) will accept written comments on Pennsylvania’s possible entry into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative through Jan. 14 – so it’s not too late to submit a public comment in support of the initiative.

As we’ve said: The Proposed Rulemaking deserves every Pennsylvanian’s support because it will help reduce air pollution, improve public health, and begin to address the problem of global warming brought on by CO2 emissions from sources in Pennsylvania.

RGGI Public Comments

Sample Message: To Whom It May Concern, I am writing today in support of RGGI. The Proposed Rulemaking deserves every Pennsylvanian’s support because it will help reduce air pollution, improve public health, and begin to address the problem of global warming brought on by CO2 emissions from sources in Pennsylvania. The proposed rulemaking would require that Pennsylvania’s budgeted CO2 emissions fall from about 78 million tons of CO2 in 2022 to approximately 58 million tons in 2030 – a drop of about 31 percent. The EQB projects that during that same period, the program would reduce emissions of smog-forming oxides of nitrogen in Pennsylvania by 112,000 tons, and reduce sulfur dioxide emissions by 67,000 tons. Pennsylvania has an opportunity to take real action on reducing air pollution through this program and we need to seize it.
