Last Friday the EPA published the proposed industrial carbon pollution standard in the Federal Register – kicking off the official public comment period. The EPA will be accepting comments for the next 60 days.
LCV is partnering with other environmental allies to collectively gather 500,000 comments by the end of this week. We'll then hand-deliver them to the EPA. Will you help LCV contribute 100,000 comments towards the 500,000 coalition goal? Stand up to Big Polluters by sending a message in support of these vital clean air standards today!
The agency’s proposed clean air standards for industrial carbon pollution from new power plants are a historic first. As coal-fired power plants are the largest single source of carbon pollution, these standards could have real impacts on improving human health and climate change-inducing carbon pollution. The EPA’s Carbon Pollution Standard would reduce the carbon pollution emitted by new coal-fired power plants by 40 to 60 percent.
