Trump to roll back Obama’s green plan

New Straits Times - - World -

WASH­ING­TON: Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will sign an ex­ec­u­tive or­der to­day to undo his pre­de­ces­sor Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan to limit green­house gas emis­sions from coal-fu­elled power plants. En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency Ad­min­is­tra­tor Scott Pruitt, a fos­sil-fuel ally, said rolling back Obama’s 2015 plan would bring back coal jobs and lower elec­tric­ity rates for Amer­i­cans. But, sup­port­ers of the Clean Power Plan say it would help cre­ate thou­sands of clean-en­ergy jobs.
