President Donald Trump is planning to roll back an Obama-era environmental regulation on the coal industry. According to The New York Times, The Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday will roll back a rule that requires new coal plants to be "fitted with carbon capture technology."
The Obama administration forbid coal plants from producing over 1,400 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt-hour. The Trump administration will raise the limit to 1,900 pounds. President Trump has rolled back numerous Obama-era regulations such as the Waters of the United States and vehicle emission standards, the Clean Power Plan, and withdrawing from the U.S. Paris Climate Agreement, according to The Western Journal.
