United States Clean Power Plan
The Environmental Protection Agency introduced the Clean Power Plan to dramatically cut carbon pollution from existing power plants across the United States. By the year 2030, emissions must be 32 percent lower than 2005 emission levels, and the states have the power to choose how they will accomplish their calculated emissions reductions targets.

Washington's Role in Reducing Carbon Emissions
- Limiting carbon pollution through the Washington Clean Air Rule, Washington Department of Energy
- Carbon Washington is a revenue-neutral carbon tax campaign aimed at lowering taxes on things we want more of (like jobs and income) and increasing taxes on things we want less of (like carbon emissions).
- The Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy is a coalition of individuals, organizations and businesses dedicated to reducing global warming pollution, strengthening our economy, and making sure all Washington families have a better future.
- The Pacific Coast Action Plan on Climate and Energy - an agreement with the Governors of California and Oregon, and the Premier of British Columbia, to synthesize Pacific Coast efforts around reducing greenhouse gas emissions and using climate science to inform legislative agendas.
- Under 2 MOU - A sub-national global climate leadership memorandum of understandingcalls for cutting emissions of greenhouse gases to 80 to 95 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.
