Dear Friend,

Moments ago, the U.S. House passed the TRAIN Act – one of the most extreme anti-environmental bills ever passed.

The bill would delay two vital standards for power plants until at least 2018 and cause up to 139,500 premature deaths, with further delays allowing over 27,000 additional deaths every year after that.

The fight to stop this monstrosity now moves to the Senate, where the threat of a presidential veto will hopefully help kill this bill.

For those of you who took action on this, thank you for your support! We did not win the House vote, but our voices were heard and our collective actions have helped make this "Dirty Air Death Bill" a lot less likely of ever becoming law.

We will keep you posted in the days and weeks ahead. For now, please help share the outrage over Twitter and Facebook.

Here are some draft messages for you:

On Facebook: The U.S. House just passed the TRAIN Act – aka “Dirty Air Death Bill” – that will cause more pollution, up to 139,500 premature deaths, and kill jobs. Tell the Senate to block this monstrosity:

On Twitter: House just passed Dirty Air Death Bill = means more pollution, more early deaths, and fewer jobs. Tell Senate to block bill:
