In a monumental leap, President Barack Obama unveiled “America’s Clean Power Plan” today. The new plan, whose main goal is to limit Carbon emissions for power plants, is the first of its kind. That’s right, there have never been federal regulations on carbon emissions for power plants in the United States.
“SCIENCE, ACCUMULATED AND REVIEWED OVER DECADES, TELLS US THAT OUR PLANET IS CHANGING IN WAYS THAT WILL HAVE PROFOUND IMPACTS ON ALL OF HUMANKIND…THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY FEELING THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE DON’T HAVE TIME TO DENY IT—THEY’RE BUSY DEALING WITH IT.” – PRESIDENT OBAMA, 2013
