“For far too long, dirty power plants have spewed pollution across the country and into Georgia communities, harming our health and fueling the climate crisis. I’m proud to add my name to the mountain of support to urge the Biden administration to finalize the strongest version of its standards to cut climate pollution from power plants by early next year. As a women’s health nurse practitioner and nurse educator, I recognize the health risks of toxic emissions from fossil fuel burning power plants. Our communities need stronger standards from the EPA that will protect public health and address the climate crisis. Our climate can’t wait!”
