On April 17 a group of states and cities, as well as NRDC, EDF, and the Sierra Club, issued a notice of intent to sue the EPA after the agency missed an April 13 deadline for new CO2 emission standards for new power plants. This is the second time the Obama administration has chosen to postpone new standards that were announced in March 2012 following a 2007 Supreme Court ruling. Emissions from coal-fired power plants constitute the single largest source of GHG emissions.
