As proceedings occurred today in the U.S. Court of Appeals, the Clean Power Progress campaign shared its viewpoint on the legal arguments surrounding the Obama Administration’s proposed Clean Power Plan:
“The Clean Power Plan is an important step forward on climate change and a demonstration of American leadership and innovation.
“No matter what the D.C. Circuit Court judges decide regarding the plan, the energy industry and policymakers at all levels – federal, state and local – should continue efforts to cut carbon emissions and build out natural gas infrastructure to support the transition to renewable energy.
“Win, lose or draw in the courtroom on the Clean Power Plan, Americans should be focused on victory in curbing our nation’s carbon footprint, now and for the future.”
