Today 17 states and Washington, D.C., representing over 40 percent of the U.S. population, filed suit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its “arbitrary and capricious” decision to rollback the clean car standards, the best federal program to fight global warming.
Clean water is essential to America’s health and welfare. Our lakes, rivers, streams and creeks provide us with water to drink, add character to our most beautiful natural places, and give us places to fish and swim. Unfortunately, our waterways are under constant threat of pollution from dangerous facilities located along their banks. These facilities are accidents waiting to happen.
Solar power is expanding rapidly. The United States now has over 53 gigawatts (GW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity installed – enough to power 10.1 million homes and 26 times as much capacity as was installed at the end of 2010. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have invested in solar energy and millions more are ready to join them.
Today, rightfully-concerned Americans descended upon the Environmental Protection Agency to give EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt a ticket -- for heading in the wrong direction on federal clean car standards.
