August 6, 2015

Vox’s David Roberts explains the modern history of the EPA’s new coal power plant rules. Why the new EPA rules will cut Greenhouse Gases but still allow for flexibility. The Red States push back and why it will fail. Are the new rules to weak?  How will the Obama Administration defend the EPA from legal challenges to the new regulations? And David Roberts looks forward to the Republican debates.
