More Information on the Proposed Clean Power Plan
On June 25, 2013, the White House announced President Obama's Climate Action Plan. This Climate Plan included three major components: to cut carbon pollution in America, to prepare the Unites States for the impacts of climate change, and to lead international efforts to combat global climate change. On June 2, 2014, at the direction of President Obama, and after an unprecedented outreach effort, the EPA released the Clean Power Plan [111(d)] proposal, under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act.
