EPA holds Dallas hearing on power plant pollution

DALLAS (AP) — Officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will sit down to hear from the public about reducing carbon pollution from power plants.

The EPA officials will take seats at the downtown Dallas public library Thursday to take the comments.

A recent EPA report says pollution that contributes to man-made climate change declined 4.5 percent nationwide last year, but Texas still leads in carbon dioxide emissions.

Texas has also decreased such pollution, but the report shows the Lone Star State still emitted about double the carbon dioxide than any other state.

Texas is home to many high-polluting facilities, such as power plants, petroleum refineries and chemical plants.

The EPA attributes the overall decline in greenhouse gas emissions to a shift from coal to natural gas and a drop in electricity production.
