[ This is written in snake oil but worth doing anyway. ]

Letter from National Resources Defense Council president regarding Obama's caving in to 'big oil' and dumping smog protection rule
"President Obama just dropped us like a hot potato.

It happened on Friday, without warning, when the President cozied up to America’s biggest polluters and killed life-saving ozone smog rules that his EPA has been working on diligently for years.

[T]he President’s pro-polluter stance is getting to be a bad habit. In the last month alone, the Obama Administration has given Shell tentative approval to drill off the coast of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge ... flashed a preliminary green light for the disastrous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline ... and now sided with corporate interests over every American who needs to breathe.
[....]
And they have absolutely no reason to stop selling out our family’s health and natural heritage to big polluters until they feel our outrage and anger.

I urge you to pick up the phone right now and give President Obama a piece of your mind.

Call the White House comment line at: 202-456-1111.

Tell the President you’re shocked at his decision to reject new standards for ozone smog. Tell him to defend the Clean Air Act against the latest attacks by House Republicans during his jobs speech on Thursday night. And urge him to show leadership once again by rejecting the Keystone XL tars sands pipeline, which could doom any hope for the clean energy future he promised us.
