The Clean Power Plan, finalized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is a game changer. It sets the first-ever limits on carbon pollution from power plants, the nation’s largest source of the pollution that is driving dangerous climate change. We need to act now because we already are seeing its effects in extreme weather, deeper drought, and more wildfires. This carbon pollution limit for power plants in Virginia is achievable, largely through increasing the state’s clean and renewable energy sources, along with improving the energy efficiency of its homes and businesses.
