Transcript: EPA is announcing the first action that we are taking under the President's climate action plan to address the most significant public health challenge of our time, which is climate change. We are announcing proposed regulations that will limit carbon pollution from this country's single largest individual sources -- power plants. This proposal does not impact existing power plants. This is all about new power plants. We are going to begin discussions with states today, discussions with stakeholders, with utilities about what we can do to work with them to establish limits on existing power plants.
