Last week, President Obama shared an old proverb with an audience in Nairobi, Kenya: "We have not inherited this land from our forebears; we have borrowed it from our children."
There are many reasons to be committed to taking care of our environment, but as a parent, I have two very important ones: my son and daughter. Their lives, and their health, are so important to me, as all children's are. When we think about the choices we make for our kids, from healthy food to fun exercise, it's important to remember that the quality of air they breathe is just as important.
We are shaping our world for them to live in, not just in some distant future, but today. That's why President Obama and our colleagues across the federal government just finalized a rule that will help leave the planet safer and healthier for our children and our grandchildren. The Clean Power Plan is a historic step in cutting carbon pollution from the largest source of emissions in our country.
Here are five reasons our children need us to commit to creating a safer and healthier environment.
