CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—August 3, 2015. U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement on President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which aims to reduce carbon pollution from power plants:
The President’s Clean Power Plan represents a big, bold step in the right direction, and I hope Republicans in Congress will wake up to the reality of climate change and global warming and join us in taking action. Our generation must take these steps now to protect the world for future generations, and that’s going to mean changes. When it comes to cleaner power plants and cleaner ways of providing electricity to consumers across the country, we have the technology, we have the science, and now we need the political will.
