View of the skyline in the city of Seattle.

The EPA is aiming to cut carbon emmissions from power plants by 30% by the year 2030.

Also, Seattle is set to approve the highest minimum wage for a city of its size: $15. Hear why business leaders are actually advocating for the pay raise. Finally, why HELOCs -- a form of second mortage -- are on the rise again.
