Earlier today, the Obama administration proposed historic new standardsthat would – for the first time ever – limit the industrial carbon pollution from power plants that contributes to global warming.
The EPA’s new clean air safeguards will help improve the quality of our air and protect our children’s health, while also helping to spark new innovations in clean energy technologies.
LCV President Gene Karpinski released the following statement on the new standards for industrial carbon pollution:
“Today is a historic day for public health and the environment. The EPA’s first-ever national standards for industrial carbon pollution from power plants that contribute to global warming will protect public health, spur innovation in clean technologies and hold polluters accountable. We strongly commend the Obama administration for continuing to prioritize strong clean air safeguards that will protect the health of our children today and protect the planet for generations to come.”
Before the EPA can finalize these new standards, they are accepting comments from the general public.
