Obama just announced a plan to cut carbon emissions by 30% by the year 2030.¬†Tired of the lack of action toward the looming problem of climate change, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed new standards for what EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy calls a “clean power plant.” Mostly aimed at coal-fired power plants, the proposed regulations seek to diminish the ever-rising carbon dioxide emissions polluting our air.

Additionally, an exciting event called People’s Climate March stands to gain momentum from these new EPA proposals. This event will be taking place in New York City this fall in an effort to bring people together to face the climate change crisis. A modern call to arms, the march serves as an invitation to people everywhere to stand together and demand action from the world’s leaders when they gather for a UN summit on climate change September 20-21st.
