THE CLEAN POWER PLAN
The President has announced a new set of carbon pollution standards on new and existing power plants—a monumental step toward reducing the carbon pollution the United States generates.
His plan will reduce carbon pollution from existing power plants 30% from a 2005 baseline by 2030.
That's a big deal—The New York Times called the President's climate proposal “the strongest action ever taken by an American president to tackle climate change.”
Stand with the President—support aggressive action to combat climate change right now.
INVESTING IN A RENEWABLE FUTURE
We don't need to choose between clean air and a strong economy. President Obama's plan means more investments in solar, wind, and other forms of renewable energy. This investment will grow our economy and strengthen our communities, while also helping combat the effects of climate change.
- The cost of solar panels has dropped 75% since 2008. There is now enough solar power produced in the United States to power 3 million homes.
- United States wind power capacity has tripled since 2008. Today, 15 million homes can be powered by wind energy.
