Three representatives of the BlueGreen Alliance will testify today during the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s hearing on the Clean Power Plan—a proposal to put the first-ever limits on carbon pollution from existing power plants—in Pittsburgh, PA.
The BlueGreen Alliance urges Congress to provide support to key tax provisions consistently and with longevity. A 21st century clean energy economy creates good American jobs, mitigates carbon pollution and ensures the US remains secure and competitive.
The Obama administration announced an ambitious goal of reducing methane emissions up to 45 percent by 2025. Achieving the administration’s goal could save the natural gas equivalent to 33 million tons of carbon pollution per year.
