Trump replacement for Obama climate plan moves forward

This article discusses how the Trump administration is pushing coal revival by eliminating regulations that protect our health and environment.

The Trump administration is advancing a proposal that would replace President Barack Obama’s principal attempt to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions with a new rule expected to go easier on the ailing coal industry.

The Environmental Protection Agency disclosed Tuesday that it sent the new rule to the White House for review. The document itself was not released, but President Donald Trump has been outspoken in his desire to prop up coal by rolling back what he considers burdensome regulations.
