E.P.A. Will Ease Path to New Coal Plants

This article discusses how EPA intends to violate its charter to protect citizens; instead, it will protect coal plants.

The Trump administration is poised to roll back a significant climate change regulation on coal-fired power plants,making it easier to build new coal plants in the United States.

The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to announce the plan on Thursday, according to four people familiar with the administration’s proposal who were not authorized to speak about it publicly. The proposal will eliminate Obama-era restrictions on newly built coal plants that in effect required them to include systems to capture the carbon dioxide they produced — a technology that is still not in use on a commercial scale.
