The state attorney general’s office recently applauded the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal to limit the amount of emissions from new fossil-fueled power plants that contribute to climate change pollutants. On Sept. 20, in a statement, State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said, “The EPA’s proposal today is a critical step forward in fighting the grave dangers posed to our state, our nation and the world by climate change pollution.” Schneiderman continued to say, “Now my office is looking forward to working with the administration to promptly set strong limits on climate change pollution from existing power plants—the nation’s largest source of emissions that are changing our climate and threatening our children’s future.”
