EPA’s recent reclamation disaster in Colorado shows us why regulation and oversight is so desperately needed.

This time, the headlines aren’t touting a progressive policy that will accelerate climate action—rather, they’re exposing an environmentally noxious mistake made by the EPA that will affect lives and livelihoods along the Colorado River Basin.
Fun fact: Each day, Eastman pumps an average of 420 million gallons of water from the Holston River to support production at its Kingsport site.
Data point: The health of the river, as it passes through Kingsport, Tenn., has improved dramatically. At Riverfront Park, in 1965 there were only 3 species of fish living in the river. In 2010, conditions had improved such that there were 29 species, including darters, shiners and a variety of game fish.

DETROIT – The 2016 Volt is engineered to offer customers more of what they want: range, range and more range.
The Volt’s all-new second-generation Voltec extended-range electric propulsion system delivers 53 miles of pure EV range, based on EPA testing. That is nearly a 40-percent improvement over the first-generation Volt.
Chevrolet expects many next-generation Volt owners will use power solely from their batteries for more than 90 percent of trips. Today, Volt owners use battery power on 80 percent of their trips.
