Senator Merkley Statement on EPA Climate Announcement

WASHINGTON–(ENEWSPF)–June 2, 2014.  Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced new rules to cut carbon pollution from power plants:

“Climate change is no longer a distant hypothetical — it is here now. It is already waging an assault on Oregon’s natural resources, damaging our farming, fishing, and forest industries.

“Americans don’t back down in the face of a challenge. We act. Acting now to cut down on the single biggest source of carbon pollution is absolutely the right thing to do, and I’ll keep pushing for further action.”
