President Donald Trump just placed a lump of coal in the Christmas stocking of every radical environmentalist.

And it looks like there will be plenty of coal to put in those stockings for years to come.

Trump - Campaign - Promises - Coal - Industry

Trump made campaign promises to revitalize the coal industry. On Thursday, his administration took another step toward making good on those promises and helping the industry recover from the era of President Barack Obama’s anti-coal policies.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s acting administrator, Andrew Wheeler, announced Thursday that the agency is proposing to loosen an Obama-era rule that would have required cutting-edge carbon capture techniques for new coal plants. Wheeler said the curbs on coal emissions were “excessive burdens” on the industry.

Proposal - Approval - Trump - Administration

All the proposal requires is approval from the Trump administration.

“Consistent with President Trump’s executive order promoting energy independence, EPA’s proposal would rescind excessive burdens on America’s energy providers and level the playing field so that new energy technologies can be a part of America’s future,” Wheeler said.

Regulations - Standards - America - Energy - Production

“By replacing onerous regulations with high, yet achievable, standards, we can continue America’s historic energy production, keep energy prices affordable, and encourage new investments in cutting-edge technology that can then be exported around the world,” he added.

Do you support cutting regulations to make it easier for new coal plants to be built?
