Cape Canaveral -- Recently, the Founder of Clean Footprint, John Porter, met with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy.
The Administrator traveled to Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando to discuss energy initiatives prior to the Clean Energy Plan announced yesterday. During her visit she participated in a classroom experiment to test air pollution, met with students studying environmental science and discussed leaving a cleaner planet for the next generation. Also in attendance were Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and EPA Regional Administrator Heather McTeer Toney.
“New federal regulations that aim to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants will have a large economic upside, largely through health savings, says Gina McCarthy, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. 'But that doesn't mean that the share of electricity from coal is going to be significantly diminished.'
