Today on The Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - The Environmental Protection Agency unveiled new standards today that call for a 30 percent cut in carbon emissions from power plants by 2030.  The regulations are the first of their kind which will affect the fleet of existing power plants in this country, which currently produce 39 percent of all U.S. emissions.  Joining us to explain these new standards and their projected impact is Kate Sheppard, a Senior Reporter and Environment and Energy Editor with Huffington Post.

4:35pm ET - Amazon has recently caused yet another controversy in the publishing world by refusing to accept pre-sale orders on books to be released by the publisher Hachette and by under-stocking Hachette’s other titles. These punitive maneuvers, which follow a dispute between Amazon and Hachette about e-book contracts, have led to significant delays in shipments of Hachette’s books to Amazon’s customers.  In his recent Op-Ed in the New York Times titled “How Book Publishers Can Beat Amazon”, Bob Kohn, a technology lawyer, entrepreneur, and investor discusses this latest fight between the online giant and the traditional publishing companies and what it means for the publishers, authors, and consumers of books.
