Obama Unveils Major Climate Change Proposal

An anonymous reader writes: Two years in the making, President Obama formally unveiled his plan to cut power plant emissions today, calling it the “single most important step that America has ever made in the fight against global climate change.” The “Clean Power Plan” includes the first ever EPA standards on carbon pollution from power plants. CNN reports: “Under the plan, the administration will require states to meet specific carbon emission reduction standards, based on their individual energy consumption. The plan also includes an incentive program for states to get a head start on meeting standards on early deployment of renewable energy and low-income energy efficiency.”
