EPA must stop chronic and consequential delays on its power sector regulations. It must get moving further, faster right now — not falling further behind.
Failure to do so means that President Biden will not meet his campaign promises and could leave recent climate progress vulnerable to a future hostile Administration.
Right now, the EPA must implement cumulative impact analysis in permitting. Last October, the EPA released a final report detailing recommendations for the Office of Research and Development’s cumulative impacts research. The agency recognizes the importance of this research approach, however has not publicly committed to using cumulative impact analysis when approving permits for infrastructure projects.
For the sake of our health and climate, we are calling on EPA to move ahead as soon as possible and address these urgent challenges.
