Clean Power Plan topic of forum

MORGANTOWN — The nation’s energy future and reducing carbon emissions was the focus of a public forum Tuesday evening in Morgantown.

The West Virginia University Sierra Club Student Coalition, League of Women Voters of Morgantown-Monongalia, and Monongahela Group of the West Virginia Sierra Club came together to sponsor the event at WVU’s Engineering Sciences Building. During the forum, titled “West Virginia at the Crossroads: EPA’s New Carbon Limits and What They Mean for West Virginia,” speakers offered their analysis on the Clean Power Plan, which is the first standard to reduce carbon pollution from electric power plants.

The main speakers included James Van Nostrand, associate professor and director of the Center for Energy and Sustainable Development at the WVU College of Law, and Mary Anne Hitt, director of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign.
