'The Trump administration proposed the "Affordable Clean Energy" (ACE) rule as a replacement for former President Obama's Clean Power Plan (CPP). While the new regulations have elements that will make it less onerous than the CPP, it is still misguided. It continues to promote the biggest fake new story ever: that human activities, particularly industrial actions, are causing runaway global warming (AGW). In reality, carbon dioxide (CO2), the only gas restricted by both the ACE and the CPP, is the elixir of life, an essential ingredient in plant photosynthesis.'
CEI's Myron Ebell: "The new rule provides minimal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants and will, therefore, result in only small increases in electric rates. It will also do no more harm to the coal industry, which still supplies 30% of America’s electricity at the lowest costs."
