Obama CLean plan

President Obama clean power plan is coming under criticism from states and industries that use fossil fuel as they move the court. The appeals came up as the Environmental Protection Agency brought out the final version of the latest regulations. 24 states are filing a case challenging the Republicans. They say that the new energy plan will leave coal miners jobless and increase electricity cost. Meanwhile, the West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said that the Clean Power Plan has consequences in the nation’s history.

CLEAN-ENERGYPOSTERObama group is for the Clean Power Plan calling it essential to reduce carbon footprints thereby impacting climate change. Moreover, it will trigger new jobs in the sector. This rule can cut carbon footprints by 30 percent by 2030. Now it is the responsibility of the states to come up with the plans to achieve the goal. The EPA has devised regulations for power plant pollutants under Clean Air Act. This ensures that the law prevents double regulation.
