New Carbon Rules

Event Detail
September 15, 2014
Atlanta, GA
Jonathan Wells was the featured speaker during this program sponsored by the Southeastern Energy Society and hosted in Alston & Bird's Atlanta office.  On July 29 and 30, the Environmental Protection Agency held meetings in Georgia to obtain feedback on the proposed new “carbon rule” from the Obama administration. It has predictably led to a chorus of antiregulation protests. Environmental advocates called the proposal an important step in addressing how pollution contributes to climate change. Utility industry leaders said the new rules will cost jobs and raise consumer costs. The proposed standard will require electricity-generating utilities to cut their carbon emissions from 2005 levels by an average of 30 percent by 2030 to combat global warming. Here in Georgia, our emissions must be cut 44 percent.
