Climate action good for Ohio

Earlier this week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Justice filed their response to industry and state lawsuits challenging the Clean Power Plan, which sets the first ever federal standards on carbon pollution from power plants.

While most Americans are in favor of the Clean Power Plan, the lawsuit seeks to deny the public health and economic benefits that would come with the Clean Power Plan — an estimated $54 billion.

The more big polluters and their allies refuse to understand that the Clean Power Plan has a strong legal foundation, the more they are denying Americans their right to cleaner air and a safer future for our children and grandchildren. The Clean Power Plan is expected to be upheld in the court, and will demonstrate that climate action is good for Ohio and the rest of the country.
