EPA unveils landmark climate rule

Posted: 6/2/2014 | Views: 414

The Environmental Protection Agency on Monday released new rules that call on power plants to cut their carbon emissions 30 percent by 2030.

The new rules are the centerpiece of President Obama's climate change plan, and are set to trigger a major battle with Republicans, coal-state Democrats and business groups.

EPA chief Gina McCarthy framed the rules as having the potential to dramatically improve public health, saying that for every dollar the government invests in the new climate initiative, families will see $7 in health benefits.
