Congress Votes to Scrap Obama’s Clean Power Plan

sciencehabit writes with news that the House voted 242-180 to repeal the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, and 235-188 to block EPA rules governing emissions from new power plants. Science reports: “Congress has voted, largely along party lines, to block a centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s climate change agenda. The votes are largely symbolic, however, because Obama plans to veto the bills. Still, Congressional Republicans, and a few Democrats, say they want to send a message to global leaders who are meeting this week to negotiate a new climate agreement that the majority of U.S. lawmakers may not agree with any deal.”
