Just days ago, the National Association of Manufacturers, an organization representing factories and other major polluters, launched a multimillion dollar TV ad campaign aimed at keeping the EPA from strengthening federal health protections from ozone pollution.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is slated to release the final version of its Clean Power Plan, regulating emissions from existing power plants, any day now. Many are already predicting changes, some that could be significant.
Opponents of the Clean Power Plan seem united in their belief that solving climate change is either unnecessary or should be very low on the list of national priorities. Their ideology remains fixed in a world of polluting energy. Fortunately for our children and grandchildren, the rest of us are moving forward.
Did EPA hit the mark - will this program achieve real, measurable, verifiable benefits for the environment? Does it fairly recognize and reward those companies that step up to innovate and lead?
Seizing the moment demands facing hard realities, as Pope Francis is calling for. It demands putting our focus on the future. It demands bold leadership.
This Bump Day, I pledge to keep fighting for clean air and water so pregnant moms everywhere have one less issue to worry about as they try to make sure their babies are healthy. We are counting on the EPA to ensure that the coal industry's progress in cleaning up its noxious pollution isn't stalled any further.
It is becoming increasingly clear that foes of the Clean Power Plan have no more regard for our judicial system than for the health and welfare of American families. The latest suit, brought by the attorney general of Oklahoma, was tossed out of court last Friday. The polluters and their allies are now batting 0 for 6.

A strong TSCA bill will ensure that politicians don't have to apologize to the next generation. For lawmakers, then, courage is an insurance policy against regret. I hope Congress can invoke the courage that so many others have displayed this summer.
While voluntary efforts can be helpful in establishing new technologies or practices, and validating industry's ability to meet regulatory benchmarks, opt-in programs alone are no substitute for effective regulation that will reduce energy waste and better protect public health.
As someone who has enjoyed the bounty of God's waters including the lakes, rivers and streams for decades, it pains me that my grandchildren may not be able to experience a childhood of clean water.
Tired of facts? Do you think all the concern about climate change is just a bunch of hooey? Then this newscast is for you.
The Supreme Court's decision to overturn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS) will have no effect on the proposed Clean Power Plan, according to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.

The two decisions, taken together, tell us that the Clean Power Plan's prospects are, in fact, pretty good. Here are three reasons why.
The Environmental Protection Agency today announced deadlines to end certain uses of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) -- powerful heat-trapping gases that significantly contribute to climate change -- because safer, climate-friendlier alternatives are now available.
