CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) Last Monday, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed new guidelines for limiting carbon pollution in Americas air.
That proposal is now seeing local support.
On Sunday, volunteers in Cedar Rapids went door-to-door in the Newbo neighborhood gathering signatures in support of the EPAs effort for a greener future.
Some of the volunteers say knocking on doors may not be the most conventional way to spread messages nowadays, but they say if enough people show their support and get involved, lawmakers will make those changes happen.
The research is out there, Sara Lanski said. This is something thats happening and knowing that everyone supports it, too, is going to change whats going on.
Door-to-door efforts were also held in Des Moines and Davenport.
By 2030, the EPA hopes to have Americas carbon pollution cut by 30-percent.
