11/26/14 – EPA’s Proposed Clean Power Rule (rebroadcast)

The EPA has extended its comment period on a proposed rule aimed at reducing carbon pollution from power plants. The rule would require states to reduce a certain percentage of their heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions, as well as submit plans to the agency by 2016 to prove how they’ll make those cuts. Nationwide, the rules are supposed to cut carbon output to 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.

On this episode of Elemental Idaho, rebroadcast from July, EPA Office of Air, Waste and Toxics Director and former Idaho State Senate Minority Leader Kate Kelly explain the proposed rule.

For more information see the EPA website. The original episode recording can be found here.
