It’s official! The Environmental Protection Agency has finalized the president’s Clean Power Plan—the first-ever federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants.
The president deserves our thanks for taking the biggest step any president has yet taken on climate change. The Clean Power Plan provides a foundation for states to build on to achieve a transformational shift away from fossil fuels to clean energy.
None of this would have been possible without your support. Earthjustice has been pushing hard for strong limits on carbon pollution over the past few years, and activists like you have been making climate action a top priority. From the record-breaking 8.7 million comments submitted to the EPA in support of climate action to the largest climate march in history in New York City last fall, support for climate action is simply undeniable.
Power plants are America’s single largest source of carbon pollution—the pollution that’s fueling climate change, intensifying extreme weather and threatening public health. The Clean Power Plan starts us down the path to achieving real pollution reductions from this sector while pivoting to clean energy solutions to power our future.
Take a moment to thank President Obama for this major action on climate change.
Climate change is an undeniable threat to our health and our environment. We owe it to our kids and grandkids to support the Clean Power Plan, which lays the foundation for even greater action by every state in the country. Decisions about clean energy should be in the hands of the people, not the fossil fuel industry. The Clean Power Plan was designed to address these challenges head-on.
The overwhelming support we have seen from you is making a crucial difference in spurring the most meaningful climate action by the United States to date.
