Clean Power Plan

Former Mass. DEP head Cash says 'no stopping' momentum on emissions caps, despite power plan uncertainty

During today's OnPoint, David Cash, dean of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and the former commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, explains why he believes the Supreme Court's stay of the power plan will not have a long-lasting effect on efforts to cap carbon.
