Dear Administrator McCarthy:
On behalf of the members and board of the Western North Carolina Alliance (WNCA), I [Co-Director Julie Mayfield], submit these comments on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan Proposed Rule (CPP).
We fully support the CPP as a commonsense plan to address coal-fired power plants, the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.
These rules are urgently needed to protect the planet as a whole and specifically the ecosystems,
communities and local economies of Western North Carolina.
