New limits on carbon pollution

Environment California Research & Policy Center, in conjunction with our national federation of state-based environmental groups, released research that helped convince the Environmental Protection Agency to set smart new limits on the amount of smog-forming carbon pollution that new coal-fired power plants in neighboring states can emit – an important victory for the 2.1 million adults and 620,000 children in California who suffer from asthma, which is exacerbated by smog.
