EPA to seek to cut power plant carbon by one-third


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The first national limits on carbon dioxide, seen as a major contributor to global warming, could be final by next year.

The Environmental Protection Agency is rolling out a plan today to cut carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 30 percent by 2030.

It's hoped one result will be to prod other countries to act when negotiations on a new international treaty resume next year.
