POLICY:

The long, hazy and winding political path that brought the Obama admin to the Clean Power Plan

Climate change was riding an updraft in 2008. More Americans than ever before -- or since -- saw it as a troubling issue. And President-elect Obama had just pledged in his campaign to do something about it. So did his Republican opponent. Nearly seven years later, Obama is ready to partially fulfill that promise.

REGULATION:

Clean Power Plan changes appease many concerns, but coal lobby promises a fight

Far-reaching rules that form the backbone of the U.S. commitment to cutting global greenhouse gas emissions do much to "help ease the pain" to states and the energy industry, as one state regulator described. But coal industry representatives said the new plan is a "change without a difference" and vowed to fight it until the bitter end.

CLIMATE:

White House toughens clean power targets, tweaks CCS terms

The Obama administration will compel the nation's power fleet to cut nearly one-third of its carbon emissions by 2030, deepening reductions and increasing incentives for renewable power.

The final Clean Power Plan that President Obama will unveil tomorrow afternoon at the White House will require today's power fleet to cut CO2 emissions 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030 -- an increase from the initial target of 30 percent in the draft rule issued in June 2014. It assigns states' reduction responsibilities based on three building blocks: heat-rate improvements at coal plants, a shift from coal to natural gas use and renewable energy.

White House axes efficiency from state clean power targets

U.S. EPA's final Clean Power Plan will no longer base state targets, in part, on estimates about how much they could boost energy efficiency, an administration official said. President Obama on Monday will release the final rule for existing-power-plant carbon emissions that does not include the draft version's "building block 4," the official said, reconfiguring the way states are assigned emissions reduction responsibilities.
