“We are disappointed that EPA chose to prioritize marginal corporate profits over public health. The Clean Power Plan was grounded in good science and good law, and it was supported by citizens and businesses from around the country, including here in Wyoming. Reducing our carbon pollution to safe and sustainable levels is really the only way forward, and we hope EPA moves forward with a replacement plan as soon as possible. In the meantime, EPA’s action won’t stop the momentum behind clean energy. Utilities will keep building and using clean power, as wind and solar resources are not just the energy of the future, but are the energy of today.”
