DC Circuit Court Rejects Calls to Delay Clean Power Plan

Today, a court rejected calls by opponents to put a stay on implementation of the Clean Power Plan, the nation’s first federal rule limiting industrial carbon pollution from our power sector.

Collin O’Mara, president and chief executive officer of the National Wildlife Federation, said today:

“Today’s decision is another victory in the effort to protect wildlife and our natural resources from the impacts of climate change. The court’s ruling clears the path to begin the important work of putting in place strong state plans that will spur the ongoing transition to a wildlife-friendly clean energy future. We look forward to working with states to advance commonsense solutions that will help both strengthen economies and avert devastating impacts to iconic species like moose and treasured habitat areas like our coasts and forests.”
