Public Views Can Ensure Most Effective Carbon Pollution Standards

WASHINGTON (September 16, 2014) –  David Doniger, director of the Climate and Clean Air Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council, issued this statement today in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announcement that it will extend the public comment period on its proposed standards to reduce carbon pollution from the nation’s power plants:

“It’s critical that EPA adopt the strongest, most effective standards to curb dangerous carbon pollution from power plants. The brief extension announced today allows for more public input without compromising the president’s deadline for EPA to finalize these first-ever climate pollution limits by next June.”
