Praise Regulations to Reduce Coal Plant Pollution


Target: Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy

Goal: Thank the Environmental Protection Agency for its efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions through the regulation of coal plants

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently proposed regulations that would reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants. These efforts should significantly improve air quality while reducing emissions of one of the greatest contributors to climate change.

The proposal would cut carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants up to 30% by the year 2030. The plan would allow states some lenience to choose how they will cut down on carbon emissions with options like increasing dependence on alternative energy sources as well as other ideas and incentives to cut back.

This rule is a tremendous victory for environmental sustainability–one of the most significant efforts the government has ever undertaken to target the greenhouse gas issue and address climate change.  The law is expected to spark lots of controversy among industry shareholders, conservatives and others who do not think that climate change is an issue that is negatively impacting our planet. However the improved regulation of coal and other fossil fuels is necessary if we are to preserve our Earth, rapidly deteriorating from the effects of climate change.

Thank the EPA for proposing stricter regulation of coal plants, and for taking real steps to address the climate change crisis already affecting our Earth.


Dear Ms. McCarthy,

Thank you for your recent proposal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants up to 30%. This is one of the largest and most sincere attempts the federal government has ever made to address the significant issue of greenhouse gases and carbon emissions.

Carbon dioxide is one of the leading contributors to greenhouse gas emissions and the efforts to reduce it will greatly improve the health of the environment. Human communities around the world are also threatened by greenhouse gasses as climate change contributes to rising sea levels and increasingly intense storms. It is also commendable that your plan provides individual states the ability to decide the methods they will use to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Your proposal is a significant step towards protecting our environment and I would like to thank you for your dedication to following through with the new regulations. Please continue your efforts to reduce the impact of greenhouse gasses on our environment, regardless of pressure from climate change skeptics and industry lobbyists.
