This December, Australian Environment Ministers will meet to decide on new air pollution standards for three dangerous pollutants connected to the burning of fossil fuels: nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and ozone.
These pollutants can have harmful effects on people’s health -- even at exposure levels well below Australia’s current standards.
Strong, health-based air pollution standards are required now to reduce the risk and damage to people’s health caused by these pollutants and to force the switch away from dirty fossil fuels to clean and safer technologies.
This December is our chance to secure stronger air pollution standards. Can you sign the petition asking your local Environment Minister to cut air pollution by supporting stronger standards to protect our climate and our health?
