LOS ANGELES – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today released the following statement in support of President Barack Obama’s America’s Clean Power Plan which will limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by fossil fuel-fired power plants.

“Power plants emit pollutants that contribute to climate change and, left unchecked, those pollutants harm our natural resources and pose a grave threat to public health,” said Attorney General Harris. “California is leading the world in curbing greenhouse gas emissions and pioneering clean and renewable energy.  The President’s clean power plan, combined with California’s green innovation, create a path for the nation to protect our environment for current and future generations.”

Attorney General Harris has fought to protect AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, which has served as a global model for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. In 2014 and 2015, Attorney General Harris and a coalition of states intervened in cases filed in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to defend the EPA’s authority to propose rules limiting emissions of greenhouse gases from existing power plants.
