“I am proud of the work NRDC has done to help make that happen. Now we are going to fight with everything we’ve got to ensure the plan moves forward and provides the necessary momentum for unified global action.” Rhea Suh, president, Natural Resources Defense Council

“Earthjustice will use the power of law to defend and strengthen the tools we have—like the Clean Power Plan—and fight back against polluters who will stop at nothing to delay, deflect and deny the transition to clean energy and healthier communities.” NRDC Press Release
