EPA proposes 30 percent reduction in power plant carbon emissions


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has introduced a proposal, the Clean Power Plan, which would cut carbon dioxide emissions from coal power plants by thirty percent by the year 2030. The plan is one of the most ambitious environmental proposals yet by the Obama Administration.

The largest source of carbon pollution in the U.S. comes from existing power plants, accounting for 38% of all domestic greenhouse gas emissions, according to the EPA. Under the new plan, carbon emissions would be reduced nationwide to pre-2005 levels. According to the EPA, the proposal also seeks to cut participle pollution, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide by more than 25%.  More
