President Barack Obama unveiled a landmark set of regulations to combat climate change in a plan that requires states to cut emissions from power plants, setting up a red-state, blue-state battle reminiscent of Obamacare.
“No challenge poses a greater threat to our future and future generations than a changing climate,” Obama said at a White House ceremony Monday. “We’re the first generation to feel the effects of climate change, and the last generation that can do something about it.”
The new rules issued by the Environmental Protection Agency to set emission standards for each state drew fire from opponents even before they were announced. States such as Wyoming and Oklahoma have sued to try to block the rule, and as details of the final regulation emerged on Monday the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups said they would try to block it in the courts, too.
