WWF Statement on Proposed Replacement of Clean Power Plan

In response to the Trump Administration’s proposed “Affordable Clean Energy” rule, a plan to replace the Clean Power Plan, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) issued the following statement from Carter Roberts, President & CEO:

“This proposed rule would set back federal efforts to limit harmful emissions from America’s dirtiest power plants. But it will not stop American cities, states, and companies from charting their own course with science, rather than politics, as their guide."

"Nearly 500 companies have committed to set science-based climate targets. Leaders of states, cities and companies representing over half of our citizens and one third of our economy are firmly committed to the goals of the Paris Agreement. These engines of the American economy aren’t waiting for Washington.”
