Clean power's day in court

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.

By taking action against the biggest source of carbon pollution in the country, we’re showing the world that we’re serious about meeting our global commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement.

But if the Plan is struck down, the United States—the world’s second-largest emitter of carbon pollution—will lose it's most powerful tool to cut climate pollution. 

We also risk setting off a chain reaction across the world as other countries follow suit and curtail their own climate action plans.

That’s why defending and successfully implementing the Clean Power Plan is at the heart of our strategic plan to slash global climate emissions.

We’re still $38,400 short of meeting our annual fundraising goal for our 2016 fiscal year, which ends on September 30. Will you make a donation of $35 to defend and advance clean energy in America?

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
