Editorial on 2014 Version of EPA Clean Power Plan

In June of 2014, EPA released its first draft of proposed carbon rules for the U.S. power generation sector. Also known as the Clean Power Plan, these rules represent the first of their kind for regulating CO2 as a pollutant and it uses Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act as its legal basis and justification. This is an editorial I wrote for the Athens Banner-Herald back in August 2014 regarding EPA’s carbon rules. My contention is that the rules present uneven challenges for individual states in the U.S., particularly for Georgia.
