350.org Executive Director May Boeve issued the following statement in response to today’s release of the Clean Power Plan:
This is the most significant action yet from the Obama administration, but it’s still not enough to secure his climate legacy. Cutting coal emissions is low hanging fruit, the next challenge will be standing up to Big Oil. We’ll be pushing the administration to build on this announcement and take the additional steps necessary to protect our climate, like rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline, ending fracking, and preventing Arctic and offshore drilling. As the Clean Power Plan shows, tackling climate change helps save lives, cut pollution, and create jobs. Thanks to the work of the millions of people involved in the climate movement, momentum is now clearly on our side.
