Trump administration seeks delay in ruling on climate plan

President Trump's latest move to support coal mining is unlikely to turn around the industry's prospects immediately.

Not so fast. Most experts are skeptical this new order will result in many new coal jobs in the short term, as those jobs face bigger threats from automation and cheap natural gas than they do from federal regulation.

Procter & Gamble, Nestle, Ikea, Levi Strauss & Co., and Best Buy also said they would stick to climate change promises made to the Obama administration.

But environmentalists say moves like reversing the Clean Power Plan and ending the coal-leasing moratorium, which was also announced this week, will actually harm people and the economy. But, will the state's far-right, wildly unpopular Governor Sam Brownback sign the bill meant to help some 180,000 Kansans obtain access to health care - even with the federal legislation footing the bill for nearly all of it?

"As the United States is, historically, the largest polluter, its failure to meet worldwide commitments will undermine the Paris Agreement that was signed by 195 countries in 2015 to fight climate change".

The Obama rule was created to limit polluting coal-fired power plants in favor of green energy, such as wind and solar. Between this Order and the budget, the Administration is proposing to stop efforts to limit climate change, to enable communities to respond to climate change and even to measure and understand climate change. But she did note that the United States "is, and remains, a party to the landmark Paris Climate Change Agreement".

The US is, at present, the second largest coal consumer in the world after China.

The CEO of General Electric Co. on Wednesday slammed President Trump's executive order rolling back former President Obama's climate change efforts in an internal memo, pledging his company will continue its efforts to combat climate change.
