Here’s the deal: The Trump Administration is working to repeal (and possibly replace) America’s Clean Power Plan. Backed by powerful oil, coal, and gas companies, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt claims the original Clean Power Plan design overstepped EPA authority. But the move to repeal and replace the plan is really about protecting Big Polluters’ bottom lines at our expense.
We know that the Clean Power Plan is good for our planet. The plan aims to significantly reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions from US power plants – one of the top drivers of the climate crisis.
