US power plant carbon cuts a small step forward
Commenting on US proposals, announced today (Monday 2 June 2014), to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants by 30% over 2005 levels by 2030, Friends of the Earth’s International Climate Campaigner Asad Rehman said:
“This announcement is a small step in the right direction, not the giant stride forward that’s so urgently required.
“If the US Government is serious about tackling climate change it must stop giving the green light to new forms of dirty energy and end it’s addiction to fossil fuels.”
