EPA to hold public listening sessions on reducing CO2 from existing plants

GenerationHub President Obama climate change CO2 emissions reductions

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will be holding 11 public listening sessions regarding the best approaches to reducing carbon pollution from existing power plants under the Clean Air Act.

The sessions will give the public a chance to contribute ideas and input on the possible approaches, according to the EPA. The feedback from the sessions will play a role in helping the agency develop guidelines for reducing CO2 pollution. The EPA will seek additional public input during the notice and comment period once it issues a proposal, which will happen by June 2014.
