California could be characterized as Climate Change Ground Zero. Fires are raging in the northern and central parts of the state, the Sierra Nevada snowpack is lower than expected due to a historic drought, and carbon emissions are spewing relatively unchecked due to an increasing population and extreme energy extraction like fracking and drilling. Not to mention the unequal distribution of climate […]

The United States (U.S.) currently has no rules for global warming pollution from power plants.
