Alec Baldwin and Kris Kristofferson spread Repower America’s clean air message

Alec Baldwin, Kris Kristofferson, Gloria Reuben, and Brandi Carlile along with many other supporters are taking part in a new video featuring BlueBrain’s track “Restriction" to help spread the word about Repower America’s efforts to protect clean air. Through the video Repower America is urging supporters to let their voices be heard regarding the fossil fuel industry’s attempt to destroy the Clean Air Act.

According to Repower America:
The Clean Air Act has received overwhelming bipartisan support over the years. In fact, one of the biggest updates to the law was signed by President George H.W. Bush in 1990.

Yet the fossil fuel industry is targeting one of the provisions that makes this law so successful -- the section that empowers the EPA to limit greenhouse gas pollution threatening our public health and welfare. They're trying to weaken the law that's given us cleaner cars, lower rates of cancer and a huge increase in air quality.
A full list of notables making an appearance in the video include A Fine Frenzy; Alec Baldwin; Almudena Fernandez; Barely Political; The Belchertown, Massachusetts Fire Department; Brandi Carlile; DeStorm Power; DJ Mike Relm; Eric Beck; Gloria Reuben; Hot for Words; Jeff Ross; John Popper, Blues Traveler; Kris Kristofferson; Lauren Francesca; Margaret Cho; Mark Douglas; Matt Urmy; Nalts; OK Go; UpDaBlock; Vassy Karagiorgos; Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips; Will of DC.
