Joe Goffman, Associate Assistant Administrator for Climate and Senior Counsel for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, explains EPA’s commonsense proposal to work with states, cities and businesses to cut carbon pollution from power plants. By looking across our whole power sector, the proposed Clean Power Plan will boost our economy, protect our health and environment, and fight climate change.
This is OK, but I would seriously edit some of this text. For example, this is part of the text of this video:
Global climate change can threaten our very way of life. Floods can destroy our homes and communities. Drought can disrupt our food production and water supplies. And severe weather can cause costly damage to our nation’s economy and infrastructure.
Here’s my edit:
Global climate change
canstarted to threaten our very way of life over the last several years. Floods cannow regularly destroy our homes and communities. Drought cansuch as the major drought in California increasingly disrupts our food production and water supplies. And severe weather canincreasingly causes costly damage to our nation’s economy and infrastructure.
That sort of thing.
