RAC’s Barbara Weinstein Speaks in Support of EPA’s Carbon Standards
Today, the EPA is holding a listening session to gather comments to inform the development of carbon pollution standards for existing power plants. Barbara Weinstein, Associate Director of the RAC, will be giving testimony in support of stringent carbon standards for existing power plants.
Jewish tradition teaches that God implored, “Take care, lest you spoil and destroy my world, because if you do, there is no one after you to make it right again” (Kohelet Rabbah 7:13). At today’s session, Barbara will express the deep commitment of the Jewish community to protecting the earth and all of its inhabitants by creating strict and logical rules for the existing power plants in our country.
Barbara Weinstein previously testified in front of the EPA in May of 2012.
