Parts 1 and 2 of "Renewable Energy in the EPA Clean Power Plan" explain emission rate credits and how the U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan may effect existing renewable energy markets

The world is awash in questions about how we will respond to the urgent need for climate action, but answers remain obscure.
As we race towards the upcoming COP 21 United Nations conference on climate change taking place in Paris in December, pressure is mounting to come up with concrete commitments and practical proposals to solve the critical issues of carbon emissions, clean energy adoption, resiliency, and climate action.
151 countries from Mexico to China have submitted plans to dramatically reduce emissions, rapidly adopt renewables, and quickly implement carbon pricing programs that incentivize heavy polluters to clean themselves up.
President Obama announced a bold new climate plan last week. The plan is being widely heralded by environmental advocates, but, perhaps unsurprisingly, pilloried by coal states and fossil fuel companies who are actively mounting legal challenges. This week on Sea Change Radio we talk with two environmental reporters, Alex Guillén from Politico and Tim McDonnell of Mother Jones. They provide an overview of the climate plan and its goals, discuss some political and legal responses, and talk about how it may be viewed globally as we anticipate the UN Climate Summit in Paris.
The EPA recently announced a Clean Power Plan that will reduce carbon emissions from power plants by 32% by 2030, but is it enough to save our economy and environment?
President Obama got it right when he recently said, “We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it.”
In an effort to become the first United States President to take comprehensive action against climate change, Obama, in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), announced earlier this week the first-ever limits on carbon dioxide emitted from power plants.
This week's unveiling of the landmark Clean Power Plan by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, heralded as our nation’s most ambitious effort to combat climate change, highlights how uniquely positioned the solar industry is to help transition the country to a new clean energy future.
