In September, the Obama Administration announced its first steps to reduce carbon pollution from power plants. The EPA will soon hold hearings in various cities at which the public can comment. For decades, public participation has become a regular and important part of how new laws are carried out. Since no hearings are scheduled in North Carolina, communities around the state are holding “Citizens’ Hearings” where all public comments will be recorded and sent to the agency as official public record.
Clean Air Carolina and NC Conservation Network are hosting the Charlotte Citizens’ Hearing on Tuesday, October 15 to allow area residents the opportunity to provide oral testimony on the new rule.
Charlotte Citizens’ Hearing October 15, 2013 – 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Caldwell Presbyterian Memorial Church 1609 East 5th Street Charlotte, NC 28204

Cleaning up power plant pollution will result in better air quality, healthier communities and a major reduction in climate changing pollution. Just last week, the world’s top climate experts announced an upper limit on carbon emissions that they warn we cannot pass if we are to avoid the most dangerous effects of a warming planet. Join us for the Charlotte Citizens’ Hearing to show your support for strong carbon rules on new and existing power plants! See below for Citizens’ Hearings scheduled in other NC cities.
