EPA Sets New Emission Guidelines

May 09, 2024
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

Last week, Catholic Climate Covenant praised the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) newly updated power plant emission standards. These emission guidelines will reduce coal ash, carbon, mercury, wastewater, and other power plant pollutants and improve the quality of life and the health and well-being of the most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters for generations to come. The EPA’s carbon pollution power plant standards, alongside the Inflation Reduction Act, which was passed in Aug. 2022, are projected to reduce carbon pollution by up to 75% by 2035. Read the Covenant’s full statement.

We invite you to join us and others in the faith community in thanking EPA Administrator Michael Regan for this important step to protect human health and respond to the climate crisis. Write your letter.
