NYT: Stand Your Ground

29 Mar 2012  |   Lea Brumfield

A New York Times editorial published yesterday applauded the Obama Administration’s industrial carbon pollution standards for power plants, along with the increased focus on fuel economy standards, saying:

“The Energy Information Administration is predicting that emissions in 2025 will be 6 percent below what they were in 2005. Some of that is obviously because of the economic slowdown. But some is because of market forces that have encouraged the switch to cleaner fuels, and some to smart policy choices… The announcement on new carbon dioxide limits for power plants continues this encouraging trend. But it is only a proposal. The coal and power industries, and the climate-change deniers, will try to derail it, in Congress or the courts. The administration must stand its ground.”
