Eight co-op members back EPA rules
Great Falls Tribune
We are members of Montana’s rural electric co-ops.
We live in rural areas of Montana and feel firsthand the impacts of climate change, from decreased stream flows, earlier snow melt, drought and increasing soil aridity to extreme heat, hail, severe wildfires and sudden flooding events. Our lands, crops, communities, lifestyles and economies are being affected.
We know that carbon pollution from power plants is a major contributor to climate change, so it makes common sense to cut those emissions. Cutting emissions will help us and people elsewhere avoid some of the most devastating impacts associated with climate change.
