in a sweeping initiative to curb pollutants blamed for global warming, the Obama administration unveiled a plan Monday aimed at cutting carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by nearly a third over the next 15 years, but it sets the deadlines for some states to begin complying long after President  Barack Obama leaves office.

EPA administrator  Gina McCarthy said, ” This is not just about disappearing polar bears or melting ice caps this is protecting our health and our homes, this is about protecting local economies and jobs. Some states will be allowed to emit more pollutants and others less, leading ton an overall nationwide reduction of 30%.”
