Overview
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing a new regulation to limit global warming emissions from power plants. If a strong regulation and accompanying state plans are adopted, carbon pollution from power plants could be reduced 25 percent by 2020, and cut in half by 2030. While coal companies and their allies are vigorously attacking the EPA, the American Lung Association puts a human face on the issue and changes the narrative to one of support for healthy air. This grant would allow the Association, one of the most prominent U.S. public health organizations, to continue its work in support of clean air, climate action, and a strong EPA regulation for power plants.
