Approved by Catholic bishop clean power plan

 Great news for the environment! The White House’s plan for clean power is a welcomed and much needed step. The chairman of the U.S. Bishops committee on domestic justice and human development couldn't agree more.

What is the clean power plan? The clean power plan sets federal limits on coal fired power plants. The Archbishop of Miami said that this is an essential step to protect all people especially children, elderly and those who have health difficulties. This plan will have a great impact in helping the environment from pollution and climate change.

The clean power plan assists in keeping with God’s plan for a healthy sound Earth for years to come. God gave us Earth as a gift to take care of and not destroy. This plan is a step in the right direction.

Power plants are the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions. The plan will set standards to lower emissions by 32 percent by the year 2030. The plan will give states ways to develop methods to obtain goals for their needs and situations.

Some say this plan is too difficult to actually work. Also, they say it will be very expensive to do.  However, the administration says that an American family can expect to save $85 a year by 2030. Besides financial benefits, there will be health improvements too by lowering premature death and help the environment.
