Each state will have a slightly different goal in the new carbon emissions reduction goals announced yesterday by President Obama. The Clean Power Plan mandates that nationwide, all power plants reduce emissions 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. In Oregon, the goal is to reduce emissions 20 percent by 2030.
