The EPA has a proposed new standard for fossil fuel-burning power plants, which will be constructed in the future, that will help ensure a lower carbon future and hopefully spur innovation in the electric industry. They are accepting public comments through June 25th. There are a number of organizations that will help you provide comments directly to the EPA, such as the National Council of Churches or the Union of Concerned Scientists. My letter, with extra citations, is below.

Public Comment on Proposed EPA Standards for New Fossil-Fuel Power Plants
INTERFAITH DALLAS ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION - Next Meeting 6:30pm Tuesday, June 19 at 1st Unitarian
E-mail from a co-organizer:
I hope you are able to attend the next meeting of IDEA at 1st Unitarian Church located at the southeast corner of Preston and Normandy across from the Park Cities YMCA. The focus of the meeting will be discovering our common vision and tossing around ideas for a project we could work on in the short term. We'll do potluck again and can use the church's dishes and glasses. (I've had special training on running the dishwasher!)
I suggest parking on the Normandy side in front of the church or in the parking spaces circling the Y. I'll have signs directing you. Looking forward to getting together.
Advancement of Women: a Baha'i Perspective by Janet A. Khan and Peter J. Khan
In this scholarly work, Janet and Peter Khan present the theological grounding, social context, historical action, and modern implementation of the concept of "equality between the sexes" as found in the Bahá'í Faith. Well researched and clearly written, the book has much to offer to those who, from any background, wish to better understand the underpinnings and the implications of this critical spiritual principle.
