Asheville Citizens’ Hearing on EPA’s Carbon Pollution Rule
In September, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed limits on carbon dioxide (CO2) from new fossil fuel power plants and is now collecting feedback on this rule from the public. Limiting pollution from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas will reduce the threat of climate disruption that is causing extreme weather events, droughts, and wildfires.
Unfortunately, EPA’s only scheduled public listening session in the Southeast is in Atlanta, and many are being delayed due to the government shutdown.
Clean Air Carolina, Environment North Carolina, North Carolina Conservation Network, Sierra Club, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, and Western North Carolina Alliance have joined together to host a series of Citizens’ Climate Hearings to provide the opportunity to speak to the EPA in support of carbon limits on new power plants. All comments at these hearings will be recorded and sent to the agency as official public record.
If you’re not able to attend this in-person event, please consider submitting comments to the EPA here.
