Eco Catholic: Advocates argue the high court's decision to delay President Obama's signature climate policy doesn't indicate a possible ruling on its legality.
More than 170 evangelical leaders have sent President Barack Obama a letter backing a Clean Power Plan that will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal-burning power plants.
The plan, which is expected to be released Monday, aims to cut carbon pollution by 30 percent from 2005 levels. Coal industry leaders have said the plan will increase costs and have a minimal effect on climate change.
The letter from evangelicals says that 230,000 "pro-life Christians" have contacted the Environmental Protection Agency in support of the plan.
Ahead of Monday’s expected carbon rules for existing power plants, the U.S. bishops are urging the federal government to protect “the least of these” in its efforts to address climate change, both locally and globally.
