Coal fire electricity generation station emissionsWorld On Brink Of Sixth Great Extinction, Species Disappearing Faster Than Ever Before, y Seth Borenstein, Associated Press, 05/29/2014: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/29/sixth-great-extinction-species-disappearing_n_5412571.html

This report on the Sixth Great Extinction come on the heels of “President Obama’s upcoming announcement of EPA’s proposed rules on carbon reductions to cut greenhouse gases from stationary sources, such as power plants, which account for about 40 percent of U.S. emissions. It’s assured Congress will be deadlock on the draft standards; those standards won’t be finalized until June 2015. And the proposal is expected to allow each state to determine how it will meet the standards. States would have about a year to develop a compliance plan and submit it to the EPA for approval.”

“The cost of inaction on climate is the real drain on our economy,” EPA spokeswoman Liz Purchia said in an email to Bloomberg. “In 2012, we saw the second-costliest year in U.S. history for natural disasters. Even the strongest sectors can’t escape the pressures of a changing climate, so it is time for us to lead.”
