One of Barack Obama’s greatest achievements, given Republican obstruction and sabotage of everything he did, no matter how necessary, was Clean Power Plan. Since saving the lives of poor people and producing clean power for less are both against Republican policy, they are introducing their own alternative: the Dirty Power Plan.

EVERY Republican policy kills people. EVERY SINGLE ONE. The only differences are the specific causes of death and how fast they work. This is no exception. Honk if you miss Eisenhower.

Grimly noted. Thx for sharing TC. Our government is being run by a bunch of greedy, f***ing morons. If there's such a thing as a "war on coal" it's a just one; the stuff is filthy!

just one more reason Rump should be impeached, failure to uphold the laws of this country --- ACA, Clean Power Plan, etc............of course, I am scared he will be starting WW3 soon with nukes and the environment will be a 2nd thought

IMHO, calling the Orange Ogre and his cohorts "morons" is an insult to morons. They are imbeciles at best, and more likely are idiots, going by the old system of measuring how many ramps one is shy of a cloverleaf.

Sadly, nothing of any kindness to the environment will be around for our grandchildren, which is frightening. The 'moron' in charge and his cronies don't care, and have got to go!!

If Pres. Obama had instituted a White Power Plan, this cretan would be trying to void it! “The war on coal is over!” I believe that is what came from Pruitt’s second anus, but no…the war on the world has begun, and the Koch boys are funding it!

The EPA saying the rollback of regulations would be done in a "Robust, open and transparent way."  Not a bloody chance!  Such is anathema to Republicans! 

Unless I missed something, I think it is safe to say that Goffman (2nd vid) does not work for the EPA anymore.  It is absolutely disgusting that Drumpf is rolling back the CPP, more like shoving it of a cliff, and why? . . . because Obama brought it in.

Republicans are the party of death.

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

I can’t express in words how angry this makes me (because I swear better in Dutch than in English, I guess). But seriously, the cuts the Clean Power Plan was projecting by 2030 were not sensational to begin with. By 2030 coal and natural (fracking) gas would still be responsible for 66% of the electrical energy in the US. And now even those wee milestones will be abandoned.

Given the “robust, open and transparent” way Republicans have “repealed” Obamacare, everyone can see that the Clean Power Plan repeal will be nothing but a farce. With Trumpcare the rest of the world could shrug and say that Americans had only to thank themselves for that if it ever came to fruition, because they voted for Republicans and Drumpf knowing what their intentions for Obamacare were. The same could be said for Dumpf’s/the GOP’s/ the Kochs’ Dirty Power plan, except this will have enormous impact on the rest of the world too and the rest of the world didn’t vote for this, nor can it influence a government which will think in terms of “America first”, or rather “America only” in global issues and which has no vision on the future at all and can’t see beyond the next election. We all depend now on those states willing to defy the American federal government and do whatever they can to continue the “war on coal”, gas and all other fossil fuels.

Freya, you took the words right out of my mouth. At some point this idiot will be out of office but it can't come soon enough for me. Some days I can't even watch the news anymore. tRUMP is a cancer on America.

will take us back years and pollute so much! We have come too far to let this Happen!
On MDNBC TONITE they are wondering how many people will it take to tackle the President if he wants to use the NUKES? Is Kelly doing to do this?
He is repeating himself to people on the phone he get's up in the middle of the nite and makes calls.
Thank you TomCat

I will admit that Obama did cut coal emissions, there was a market driven increase of solar under his plan but I'll not ever forgive him for allowing nuclear power plants to once more be built after over 30 years they were not allowed to.

I spent my twenties and half my thirties along with many others to begin getting nuclear energy out of our lives, existing plants would stay, but no "new" plants could be built. As an Independent voter I try to see any good that is in both Parties, true much harder to find in the GOP, must dig deep, but I also will point out the flaws and failures in both Parties.
