Wells Fargo Building - Ground Floor Lobby Auditorium
The EPA’s proposed “Clean Power Plan,” which seeks to regulate carbon dioxide emissions by forcing the closure of coal-fired electric generating units, would ultimately decrease global temperatures by only 0.02ºC, and cost hundreds of billions of dollars. In exchange for the thinnest of prospective environmental gains, the EPA proposes to effectively take over the electric power generating system in every state, forcing the shutdown of plants, the firing of thousands of hardworking Americans, and raising the cost of electricity for every business and family. A complimentary lunch will be provided.
