EPA mulls limits on carbon

Local advocates for health, the environment, and alternative energy will hold a press conference Thursday morning at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, where the US EPA is holding a hearing on its proposal to begin regulating carbon emissions.

Ron Burke of the Union of Concerned Scientists, James Gignac of the Sierra Club, Brian Urbaszewski of the Respiratory Health Association, and others will speak in support of the EPA’s proposal to phase in regulations starting with the largest industrial emitters – like Chicago’s two coal plants – which are responsible for half the nation’s global warming emissions.

The press conference is at 9:30 a.m. in Room 48 (level 2); EPA will hear testimony starting at 10 a.m. and running to 7 p.m.
