Mayor Murray’s statement on President Obama’s Clean Power Plan


SEATTLE – August 4, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Mayor Murray issued the following statement following President Obama’s announcement of his new Clean Power Plan:

“I applaud the President’s bold leadership in releasing the Clean Power Plan limiting pollution from power plants.”

“The Clean Power Plan will significantly reduce climate pollution while growing a clean energy economy. By creating flexible and achievable standards and a practical timeline, the Plan will not only protect future generations but improve our health and create jobs today.”

“Seattle has long been a leader in climate action, committing to carbon neutrality, and our electric utility is the first carbon neutral utility in the nation. However, cities alone cannot meet the climate challenge. Action at the national scale is necessary.”

“As Pope Francis wrote in his encyclical on climate change, ‘the climate is a common good, belonging to all and meant for all.’ I am pleased that this Administration, through this action, is taking these words to heart.”
