The Environmental Protection Agency is now taking public comment on its Clean Power Plan, which establishes the nation’s first-ever limits on carbon pollution from existing power plants. These coal-burning power plants are Minnesota’s—and the United States’—biggest cause of global warming.
Join Minnesota leaders and citizens at the state Capitol to show your support for this crucial step forward in setting responsible limits on carbon pollution from coal plants.
