Sign Comments to EPA on Clean Power Plan - Due Monday!

SIGN ON: Tell EPA to clean up the Clean Power Plan!


DEADLINE is Monday, December 1st

As you probably know, the EPA has published its Clean Power Plan, intended to reduce carbon emissions from the nation's electricity sector, for public comment. Our comments ask EPA to:

  • Set more aggressive targets
  • Comply with the Civil Rights Act and address environmental justice
  • Regulate power plants (not states) and disallow pollution trading and offsets
  • Close the methane loophole and not bless the move from coal to gas, which is worse for the climate than coal
  • Close the biogenic CO2 loophole, and disallow a shift from coal to biomass and waste incineration, whose CO2 emissions are also worse than coal
  • Disallow nuclear power subsidies
  • Disallow new investment in old coal plants
  • Reject carbon capture and sequestration and enhanced oil recovery
