WASHINGTON (January 28, 2014) — The following is a statement on President Obama’s State-of-the-Union address tonight from Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

“Power plants account for 40 percent of our carbon pollution, and President Obama tonight underscored why we must move quickly to impose limits on them, as we do now for other pollutants.
