Clean Power Plan Announcement. delivered 3 August 2015, White House, Washington, D. Audio AR-XE mp3 of Address. And today, we're here to announce Americas Clean Power Plan - a plan two years in the making, and the single most important step America has ever taken in the fight against global climate change. Right now, our power plants are the source of about a third of Americas carbon pollution. That's more pollution than our cars, our airplanes and our homes generate combined. That pollution contributes to climate change, which degrades the air our kids breathe. The Clean Power Plan was an Obama administration policy aimed at combating anthropogenic climate change global warming that was first proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency EPA in June 2014. The final version of the plan was unveiled by President Obama on August 3, 2015. The Obama.

US President Barack Obama has unveiled what he called the biggest, most important step we have ever taken in tackling climate change. The aim of the revised Clean Power Plan is to cut greenhouse gas emissions from US power stations by nearly a third within 15 years. The measures will place significant emphasis on wind and solar power and other renewable energy sources. However, opponents in the energy industry have vowed to fight the plan.

Watch all the key moments from Obama's speech at the White House in 2 minutes. 00:00And today we're here to announce America's Clean Power Plan a plan two years in the making. And the single most important step America has ever taken in the fight against global climate change. And I am convinced that no challenge posed a greater threat to our future and future generations than a changing climate. This is one of those rare issues because of its magnitude because of its scope that if we don't get it right we may not be able to reverse. Barack Obama announces on Monday 'the biggest most important step' the US has ever taken to combat climate change the new clean power Barack Obama will announce his ActOnClimate initiative to combat climate change. The new plan sets a goal of cutting carbon pollution from power plants by 32 percent by the year 2030, compared with 2005 levels - a 9 percent jump from the previous target of 30 percent - while rewarding states and utility companies that move quickly to expand their investment in solar and wind power. Many states will face tougher requirements for lowering greenhouse-gas emissions under the revised plan. The rollback of the Clean Power Plan, which limits greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, sets up a bitter fight over United States climate policy. Eliminating the Clean Power Plan makes it less likely that the United States can fulfill its promise as part of the Paris climate agreement to ratchet down emissions that are warming the planet and contributing to heat waves and sea-level rise. Trump has vowed to abandon that international accord. It also is a personal triumph for Mr. Pruitt, who as Oklahoma attorney general helped lead more than two dozen states in challenging the rule in the courts. The Clean Power Plan was key to Washingtons implementation of the Paris agreement on climate change, from which Trump withdrew in June. It aimed to reduce US power industrys carbon dioxide pollution levels 32 percent below the 2005 levels by 2030.
