Did you know that only a handful of sources, including coal-fired power plants, are responsible for more than half of all global-warming pollution in the United States? It's time to hold these mega-polluters responsible for their share of the dirty air.
EPA's Big Polluters rule is a major step toward holding these facilities accountable. By focusing on cleaning up the largest sources of global warming pollution first, emissions can be cut quickly, while still helping our economy grow.
EPA is right to seek the most bang for its regulatory buck by taking on the big polluters first. The Big Polluters rule will result in real pollution reductions and help spur growth and development of clean energy technologies. I support EPA's decision to efficiently and effectively get us on track towards a cleaner future.
