Utility Companies Band Together In Effort To Stop New EPA Clean Power Rule


Finally tonight, some good news. We spend most of this show talking about corporations
who harm consumers and destroy this planet one way or another, but in the past week,
multiple corporations from all over the country have come together to do some good in the
world. A group of nine utility companies are fighting
back against the EPA’s decision to roll back the clean power rule, arguing that the rollback
will cause more pollution and harm in the future. The clean power rule would have drastically
reduced emissions from power plants, which are a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions. By repealing this rule, power plants are no
longer bound to reduce emissions, but they also don’t get the government subsidies to
help pay for things like greening their plants. Meaning the companies end up both paying and
polluting more under the EPA’s new rule. Even if their motivations are somewhat self
serving, these companies deserve credit for stepping up and doing the right thing, at
last. The policies that they’re fighting against
are going to cause irreparable harm to American citizens. And sometimes you just have to take a stand
and you have to take a stand with those allies that you can find at the time. And right now, they’re are allies. That’s all for tonight, but find us on Facebook
