"On June 2nd President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a historic plan to cut carbon pollution and stop the worst effects of climate disruption. The Clean Power Plan is our nation’s first major action to cut dangerous carbon pollution from our largest polluters, 30% by 2030, and will help spur a clean energy economy that can drive down electricity bills and create hundreds of thousands of dependable jobs.This is the beginning of what could be the biggest climate fight in US history. The proposed plan is already under attack by fossil fuel industry, Georgia utilities, elected officials, and the billionaire Koch Brothers who are mobilizing like never before to send their lobbyists to Washington and fund astro-turf groups like “Georgia Energy Freedom Alliance” and Americans for Prosperity Georgia.On July 29th, EPA will host the first of just four national hearings on the proposed Clean Power Plan… right here in Atlanta. Let’s show the world that the southeast is ready for serious action to stop climate disruption!”
