The following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s new rule regulating carbon pollution can be attributed to Chase Huntley, senior government relations director for The Wilderness Society.

“Today’s carbon rule is a much-needed step from the federal government to rein in climate-change causing greenhouse gas pollution. This rule will lead to cleaner air, cleaner water, and help cut down on the rampant carbon pollution that is threatening American wilderness.

“Whether it’s hotter wildfires scorching the intermountain west or rising seas threatening the coasts, America’s wild lands are on the front lines of climate change. Today’s rule also helps level the playing field for clean renewable energy like wind and solar, which produce the energy we need without the carbon pollution.”
