EPA Targets: How Hard Will Your State Have to Work? (Interactive Map)


By Emily Holden (@emilyhholden)


The Obama administration’s climate plan seeks to cut nationwide carbon emissions from the power sector 17 percent by 2030, but it sets widely different targets for the states. The proposed rule offers four options for reaching the goals and describes how much a state might rely on each method.


But just how much states will actually have to change their current power sources within these four different options has been difficult to gauge. To make things easier to understand, Morning Consult prepared an interactive map that demonstrates how big of a change each option would require if states followed the EPA’s guidance exactly. For example, Delaware would have to decrease electricity production from coal-fired plants 89 percent. Ohio would need to increase its share of green energy production 1000 percent, from 1 percent to 11 percent by 2030. READ THE FULL STORY AND SEE THE INTERACTVE MAP.
