Politifact Says Scott Walker’s Claim that EPA climate regs will have ‘marginal’ impact is ‘half true’

, Walker said the Obama administration’s “own Environmental Protection Agency” has said its Clean Power Plan “will have a marginal impact on climate change.”

The EPA acknowledges that the plan can have only a limited effect on global climate change, given that they order reductions in carbon emission only in the United States. But a key aim of the plan is to spur other nations to reduce their emissions, as well, and to spur new technologies that will help reduce emissions.

Walker’s statement is partially accurate, but leaves out important details — our definition of Half True.
