EPA Proposes Eliminating Obama Administration’s Costly “Clean Power Plan”

October 6, 2017   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will propose repealing the Clean Power Plan — the set of regulations put into place by the Obama administration to severely limit the amount of carbon dioxide emissions that power plants can release into the atmosphere. Former President Obama justified these regulations in the name of fighting “climate change.” In a video released by the White House on social media on August 1, 2015, Obama called the plan “the biggest most important step we’ve ever taken to combat climate change.” On October 4, both the New York Times and Reuters reported that they had reviewed an internal EPA document, “October 2017 Tiering List,” which states that the agency will issue a proposal to repeal the Obama plan and will ask the public to recommend ways in which it could be replaced.“The agency is issuing a proposal to repeal the rule,” the EPA document states. It says the agency will issue a formal notice of its intention to develop a new rule “similarly intended to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from existing fossil-fueled electric utility generating units and to solicit information for the agency to consider in developing such a rule.”
