Last year, we took the biggest step we’ve ever taken to cut carbon pollution. EPA’s Clean Power Plan puts the U.S. on a path to reduce emissions from our aging fossil-fuel-fired power plants by almost one-third below 2005 levels by 2030.
It took just hours for climate obstructionists to attack. Dozens of fossil fuel industry players, together with allied states, filed suit to overturn the plan.
Today, the Clean Power Plan finally its day in court.
EDF was at court this morning along with a diverse, bipartisan coalition of supporters from all across the country—including 18 states, 60 cities (see the map below!), leading consumer protection organizations, legal and technical experts, and dozens of our friends in the environmental and public health community who have joined forces to aid the Obama administration’s defense of clean energy.
Across America, cities are standing up for clean energy
