EPA to abandon restrictions against chemical linked to climate change

This article discusses how EPA is about to abandon restrictions against chemical linked to climate change.

The Trump administration is planning to do away with an Obama-era regulation that restricted a known greenhouse gas from being used as a refrigerant in household appliances.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) late Wednesday announced it’s proposing a rule to rescind a 2016 regulation that would have phased out the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in appliances. The chemical is frequently used as a refrigerant substitute in air conditioners and refrigerators.
