NRDC: McCarthy Lays out Clear Case for Clean Power Plan

WASHINGTON (July 23, 2014) – Natural Resources Defense Council President Frances Beinecke issued the following statement after Gina McCarthy, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, testified before a congressional panel on carbon pollution standards:

“Gina McCarthy laid out a compelling, crystal-clear case for combating climate change. From the other side we heard only the same tired voices of doom, denial and defeatism. The Clean Power Plan is the right roadmap to a cleaner and healthier future for all generations to come.”
