EPA Listening Session on Carbon Pollution Safeguards

We've got folks in the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Listening Session on Carbon Pollution Safeguards today. They're live-tweeting it, using the #stoppolluters hashtag. The session runs from 1pm to 3pm ET - watch the live-tweets in the window below.

Background on this session: Currently, there are no limits on the amount of carbon pollution spewed into the air by power plants and refineries, but by establishing safeguards – called New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) – the EPA will be able set reasonable limits on pollution from new and existing polluters. EPA has committed to issuing carbon pollution standards for the biggest polluters, power plants and refineries in the next two years and this will week kick off five listening forums. Today's session is with utility representatives.
