Clean power: the case for carbon pollution limits

In response to the many dangerous impacts of climate change, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed the first-ever limits on industrial carbon pollution in June 2014. Each year more than 2 billion tons of carbon pollution are spewed into the atmosphere by power plants -- the largest source of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. The Clean Power Plan will move America toward a cleaner, healthier environment for future generations while ensuring an ongoing supply of the reliable, affordable power needed for economic growth.
