The Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan is already on trial just two months into the new Congress.  The first hearing regarding the draft plan was in the Senate Environment and Public Works committee with Acting Assistant Administrator Janet McCabe. Throughout the meeting McCabe dodged heated questions from the Republican leadership in regard to the climate safeguards the agency has proposed.  Of course, what would one expect given that long-time climate science denier, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), is now the committee chair.

In a May 2013 meeting at the EPA's headquarters, Clean Air Ambassadors shared their concerns for clean air.

At the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's listening session regarding carbon pollution controls from existing power plants, I put myself in EPA’s shoes and did some real listening. It turns out the list of what may be lost and what must be protected by such a rule is not as short as we sometimes make it in the name of expediency.
