The announcement came from Scott Pruitt, EPA Administrator, while speaking in Kentucky, where he announced that it will sign to repeal the Clean Power Plan on Tuesday.
He said: “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. No better place to make that announcement in than Hazard, Kentucky”.
The Clean Power Plan was created after executive order back in 2015, and was used as the main tool of the US to meet its Paris Agreement pledges.
It required States to meet specific carbon emission reduction standards based in their energy consumption, including an incentive program for States to accelerate early deployment of renewable energy and low-income energy efficiency.
Its creators had estimated that the Plan could prevent 2,700 to 6,600 premature deaths and 140,000 to 150,000 asthma attacks in children per year.
