NRDC: Don't weaken Clean Air Act for a utility climate deal

Bravo to our friend Dave Hawkins of NRDC for his very clear comments, as published today in Politico, opposing any effort by the electric power industry to weaken the Clean Air Act as part of a possible utility climate deal.

…[NRDC’s Dave] Hawkins said he’s also prepared to fight any move by the utility industry to weaken the Clean Air Act as a trade off for its support on CO2 limits.

“We will oppose unequivocally and aggressively any attempt to weaken the current Clean Air Act,” Hawkins said. “The power sector has fought cleanup efforts under the Act for decades and the attack on pending rules for greenhouse gases and conventional pollutants is simply its latest gambit.”
