Public health as well as the climate benefit from the Clean Power Plan. If America continues to not get on the train with clean energy policies and innovation, we will be left behind economically and will not be able to compete internationally. The Republican party has consistently supported policies that harm health and the environment. People are not separate from our environment. Do you breath air and drink water? How do you explain Republicans disregard for science, climate and health to your children and grandchildren? I have a doctorate in science and will not be voting Republican in 2020 for this reason.
