Group Suggests New Rules for Further Cuts in Carbon Pollution

In the article I read it has shown us newer possibilities for sustainability which could be put into effect very soon. The NRDC ( Natural Resources Defense Center)  which has a very strong voice in Obama’s climate change agenda, has created a new climate plan which is planned to cut carbon dioxide emissions by about 600 million tons by the year 2020. One of Obama’s original plans for cutting down the emissions was to force coal burning plants to cut down their emissions. However, the NRDC believe that instead of just forcing them to cut emissions, there should be pollution limits for each state in order to regulate the amount that is being released. The main problem which lies in the idea are the coal burning industries since they believe that if this law passes, that the coal burning industries will eventually just be shut down.
