EPA Administrator Michael Regan,
Thank you for proposing to cut global warming pollution from power plants. We must require America’s biggest polluters to clean up their act, instead of continuing to harm our climate and our health, and we shouldn’t allow new power plants to make these problems worse.
The proposal allows more pollution from some coal plants and smaller or intermittently running gas plants — we urge you to extend the limits to even more power plants to accelerate the transition away from dirty, polluting energy.
Most of the top 50 polluters in the U.S. are coal and gas-fired power plants. Together, those 45 power plants emitted 28% of all greenhouse gases from electricity generation nationwide, while generating only 11% of the nation’s power.
Please finalize the strongest possible limits to cut global warming pollution from power plants.
