WASHINGTON, D.C. - December 3, 2012 (Investorideas.com renewable energy newswire) The Natural Resources Defense Council will unveil on Tuesday at the National Press Club a bold and innovative approach to curbing carbon pollution from existing power plants that fuel climate change-all the more timely in a year of ravaging wildfires, drought, floods and Hurricane Sandy.
Based on sophisticated analysis and modeling, NRDC's new federal-state approach would slash carbon pollution while creating substantial numbers of clean energy jobs and improving the health of Americans-and the benefits far outweigh the costs by as much as 15 times.
