"As a broadcast meteorologist, it is my job to sound the alarm when weather dangers are on the horizon. Well, a larger storm has been brewing for quite some time now, and I would be remiss in not alerting you to that danger as well: climate change. It is making extreme weather worse and will further disrupt our lives, livelihoods and economy unless and until it is curbed. Thankfully, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon release new standards with the potential to significantly reduce the amount of climate pollution released by power plants. These standards will clean up our air and protect our health and economy."
