Letter: No time to relax

Last modified: 1/24/2016 7:40:03 AM
The Paris climate talks may be over, but there’s still work to be done in addressing climate change and protecting public health.

As polluter allies in Congress continue their attempts to dismantle the Clean Power Plan, this year is not an opportunity to relax. The good news is that the momentum for climate action continues to grow. That’s no surprise, given that the Clean Power Plan, a key component of America’s efforts to address climate change, will benefit communities across the country, including in New Hampshire.

With the Clean Power Plan, states are given the opportunity to take advantage of the many benefits of a clean energy economy that could save consumers up to $45.8 billion on their electricity bills by 2030 while reducing pollution.

It’s time for congressional climate deniers to stop doing the dirty work of big polluters and start supporting these and other safeguards that can help secure a safe and healthy environment – and economy – for our children and grandchildren.
