The Sierra Club helps you tell the EPA to finalize rules requiring coal corporations to stop discharging toxic coal ash into our waterways. That would mean less mercury, arsenic, and lead in your drinking water. So what would the EPA have coal corporations do instead? The EPA would force coal corporations to transition out of using ponds to store their coal ash waste and into using "dry bottom ash systems," some of which you can read about here, if you're up to it. The forces of corporate power, in addition to yelling COMMUNISM SOCIALISM NAZISM KENYAN ANTI-COLONIALISM!!!! at every attempt to make sure we drink clean water, will tell us that forcing coal corporations to move to dry systems will make your utility bills go up. We could make many objections to that, but let's just boil them down to one: is that the world we want to live in, where the big corporations always hold us hostage so we don't make the world a better place? OK, two: if you can't drink the water, your cheap energy doesn't matter.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, the National Women's Law Center still helps you do that. Congress passed the Equal Pay Act fifty years ago, when women made about 59 cents on every dollar their male counterparts made, and now women make 77 cents on the dollar -- which is better, certainly, but which also isn't a dollar on the dollar, which is what women deserve. It's hard to imagine objections people could have to closing loopholes and tightening enforcement of what's already the law. OK, it's not that hard to imagine: a lot of right-wingers claim the bill is a boon for trial lawyers, as if women should redress allegations of corporate illegality somewhere other than the courts. Or maybe they'll tell us corporations have a First Amendment right to keep information about what they're paying their workers private -- as if workers have no First Amendment right to find out if their boss is screwing them! Argument-by-dog-whistle is no way to advance civilization.
