A new study in the journal Nature Climate Change shows that states can gain large clean air and public health benefits from power plant carbon standards. The paper, co-authored by Kathy Fallon Lambert, HF Science & Policy Integration Project Director, also documents how these added benefits depend entirely on critical policy choices that will be made by the Environmental Protection Agency in the final Clean Power Plan expected in July.

Lambert was joined in this research by colleagues from Syracuse University, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston University School of Public Health, Resources for the Future, and Sonoma Technologies in a project convened by the Science Policy Exchange.
