It signifies a new era of growth for affordable and safe clean energy sources that don’t fuel climate disruption and sicken our communities…The Clean Power Plan is an opportunity for workers, entrepreneurs, and businesses to prosper…Public officials around the country have a choice. They can support new jobs, cleaner air, healthier families, and the vast majority of the American people - or they can stand with fossil fuel executives who will say and do anything to maintain the dangerous status quo…” click here for more
