Carbon pollution from coal power plants continue to sicken our families and make climate change worse. Previously the EPA estimated the Clean Power Plan would prevent 90,000 asthma attacks, 300,000 missed work and school days, and 3,600 premature deaths annually by 2030.
These health impacts of climate change disproportionately affect communities of color and low-income families the most. So getting rid of the Clean Power Plan is an added assault on the most vulnerable among us. With the recent extreme weather events -- hurricanes, floods, wildfires -- it’s clear we need stronger climate action, not less.
