The proposal under the Clean Air Act to cut carbon pollution is seen in WashingtonBy Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama will unveil on Monday the final version of his plan to tackle greenhouse gases from coal-fired power plants, kicking off what is expected to be a tumultuous legal battle against federal environmental regulators by the coal industry and its political allies. The revised Clean Power Plan will seek to slash carbon emissions from the power sector by 32 percent by 2030 from 2005 levels, a 9 percent increase over a previous proposal, a senior White House official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity ahead of Monday’s official launch. The regulation is aimed at ushering in a sweeping transformation of the U.S. electricity sector, encouraging an aggressive shift toward more renewable energy away from coal-fired electricity.
