With its comment, Google joins Apple in arguing that keeping the policy is a good deal for the US. Google says the Clean Power Plan could go even furtherThe Clean Power Plan, which was finalized in 2016, calls for power plants — the biggest carbon polluters in the US — to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by roughly 32 percent by the year 2030. But the Clean Power Plan has been tied up in courts, and never went into effect. “An updated Clean Power Plan could make an even more substantial, and still cost-effective, contribution to climate change mitigation,” the comment says. Now, the EPA will have to respond to the comments before it goes about dismantling the Clean Power Plan — a move that will likely be met with even more lawsuits.
