The New York Times calls on the Senate to save the Clean Air Act: http://bit.ly/12X5D6
Without this section of the Clean Air Act, President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency will have to halt recent efforts to crack down on the global warming pollution from dirty coal plants.
And if Congress eliminates this Clean Air Act provision, they’ll let old, dirty coal plants off the hook for their pollution—and could pave the way for the construction of over 100 new coal plants in communities across the country.
As long as Big Coal dominates our politics and our energy grid, wind and solar power won’t be able to compete on a level playing field. That’s terrible news for the climate and the economy: wind and solar create more than twice as many jobs as coal and oil.
We need the Senate to save the Clean Air Act and open the door to the clean energy economy of the future. Do your part & let your Senator know your thoughts!
