Trump’s fragile ego is the reason he is jealous of former President Barack Obama. However as hard as he tries, people will never love him the same. Perhaps, this is the reason he is repealing every Obama-era policy, no matter what the consequences could be. EPA Director Scott Pruitt announced at an event at Kentucky that Trump is rolling back Obama’s clean power plan.

“The war on coal is over. Tomorrow in Washington D.C., I will be signing a proposed rule to roll back the Clean Power Plan.”
Calling the war on coal a myth, he said the real was on coal was won years ago when America shifted to natural gas.
Back in March 2017, a report said, “Even as legacies of the Obama administration’s environmental policy – most notably the Clean Power Plan and the Stream Protection Rule, both thorns in the side of the coal industry – are rolled back, coal’s future still looks bleak. Although coal accounted for 30 percent of U.S. electricity production last year and is the preferred fuel of some heavy industries, the number of coal plants is shrinking, and coal’s contribution to generating electric power has been in steady decline for years. Utilities are shuttering older coal plants, and there are no plans to build new units.”

The science of clean burning of fossil fuels has made Smog Warning Days rare for decades in American and Canada. Life is good.
