Trump Administration Creates New Carbon Emissions Rule That Helps Coal Companies

A new carbon emissions rule for U.S. power plants was finalized by the Trump administration.

According to Reuters, the administration thinks the rule will cut pollution without damaging the coal industry.

The rule will help coal companies who have tough competition against natural gas, solar and wind energy suppliers.

Environmentalists and Democrats think the regulations won’t significantly rude emissions.

The Environmental Protection Agency said the rule gives states three years to devise their own plans to cut emissions.
