    QUICK NEWS, June 3: SIERRA CLUB ENDORSES OBAMA EPA EMISSIONS PLAN; THE CLIMATE GROUP ENDORSES PLAN; EARTHJUSTICE ENDORSES PLAN

    SIERRA CLUB ENDORSES OBAMA EPA EMISSIONS PLAN The Centerpiece of Obama’s Climate Action Plan Curbs Carbon Pollution from Existing Power Plants, Will Save Billions of Dollars and Countless Lives June 2, 2014 (Sierra Club)

    “…[T]he U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed the first-ever national protections against dangerous carbon pollution from existing power plants. Carbon pollution is the leading cause of climate disruption and fuels superstorms, floods, wildfires, and extreme heat. It also worsens the effects of other air pollution that sickens our children and costs billions of dollars each year in emergency room visits, lost productivity and premature death…This new standard, which is the centerpiece of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, will help clean up the industry that creates the lion’s share of carbon pollution in our country. The new protections will also help reduce other life-threatening air pollution including mercury, soot, and smog…”

    [Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune:] “[T]he president made good on his promise to American families that his administration would tackle the climate crisis, and clean up and modernize the way we power our country…Climate disruption is the greatest challenge facing our generation. Until now, power plants have been allowed to dump unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into our air, driving dangerous climate disruption, and fueling severe drought, wildfires, heat waves and superstorms. Extreme weather, and the costs to Americans’ health and wallets, will only worsen unless we act…The Sierra Club and our 2.4 million members and supporters stand with President Obama and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy…” click here for more

    THE CLIMATE GROUP ENDORSES OBAMA EPA EMISSIONS PLAN Environmental Protection Agency announcement: The Climate Group responds

    June 2, 2014 (The Climate Group

    “…[T]he Obama Administration set new regulations limiting carbon emissions from US power plants, which is central to Obama’s Climate Action Plan. Power plants currently account for about 40% of America's total carbon emissions…”

    [The Climate Group CEO Mark Kenber:] “…[This] announcement from America shows leadership and commitment to securing a global climate agreement…As Gina McCarthy said in the announcement, we can turn risks of climate change into business opportunity. The performance of clean energy and technology stocks demonstrates again and again that there is a strong economic case for climate action. The average return on investment from clean energy technology is over 30% within a 3-year period…The Climate Group has been working with American leaders in government, business and society to depolarize the climate issue, bring them together around the evidence for action, and demonstrate the undeniable business case for an American Clean Revolution that boosts growth and creates jobs…[This] could be the butterfly moment that sparks a chain of events that ripples across the globe and builds momentum for the international climate negotiations, the US–China bilateral relationship on climate talks which could deliver a global agreement…” click here for more

    EARTHJUSTICE ENDORSES OBAMA EPA EMISSIONS PLAN EPA’s Historic Announcement For New Protections Against Carbon Pollution

    June 2, 2014 (EarthJustice)

    “…EPA announced a draft plan to address climate change through standards to protect public health by limiting carbon pollution from existing power plants. These protections are the centerpiece of the President’s Climate Action Plan, announced nearly one year ago, and could be the most effective action to curb climate pollution in our history…”

    [Earthjustice President Trip Van Noppen:] “…We are confident that once finalized these new protections will help our nation meet the pollution reduction goals the President has set. We will do everything we can to promote the strongest public health protections possible. Climate change is happening here and now. We cannot wait to provide protection for our families and communities, especially low income communities that are hit hardest by climate disasters…There is no graver challenge…And there is no better place to start than the aging power plants currently pumping out 40 percent of the nation's carbon pollution. The substantial reduction in greenhouse gases achieved by these safeguards will help avert or mitigate the ongoing disaster of climate change and the widespread effects it will have on public health…We applaud the courage the President and Administrator McCarthy have shown…and we will stand behind them…” click here for more
