    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 27, 2012 

    CONTACT: Jason Miner, 202-337-0808,

    Maggie L. Fox, President and CEO of The Climate Reality Project issued the following statement in response to EPA’s proposed carbon pollution standards:

    “The coal industry has spent hundreds of millions of dollars telling the American people that coal is "clean." If that's true, then the industry will welcome these new rules. But we are more likely to hear the same old tired and false claims denying the reality that coal is dirty and that burning it is a major cause of the climate crisis. As the record-breaking temperatures we’re experiencing this month all over the United States and Canada make clear, it's past time for bold solutions. The coal industry must either clean up its act, or make way for cheaper, cleaner ways to power our country.”
