Posted March 04, 2020 12:53:54A key element of the Obama administration’s “cap and trade” policy for curbing carbon emissions was that it would put new regulations on carbon emissions.
This included the requirement to use cleaner, more efficient technologies.
The goal was to put pressure on the fossil fuel industry to reduce their use of carbon dioxide and to help fight climate change.
But there’s a new twist to that plan.
This year, the Trump administration has started to target the coal industry.
Coal, which has been used for nearly every major industrial use for more than 100 years, is no longer considered a major source of CO2 emissions.
The new rule was supposed to put a cap on CO2 emission from existing power plants and require the replacement of coal plants with natural gas.
It’s the latest in a long line of attempts to impose a new tax on carbon.
This new proposal, which could hit the coal sector hard, would also affect existing coal plants that produce electricity, according to a new report from the Carbon Tracker Initiative.
A new report by the Carbon Scorecard, a nonprofit environmental group that tracks global emissions trends, found that coal has become less a source of emissions over the past two decades.
Coal emissions dropped by about 8% from 1980 to 2016.
According to the CarbonScorecard, this decline is due to improvements in the technology that makes coal plants more efficient and efficient technology is also being used to make coal plants less expensive.
This reduces CO2 pollution from existing plants, which are already required to pay a fee to the EPA.
In addition to cutting coal emissions, the rule could make it easier for existing coal power plants to replace the older ones, the report said.
This would mean that a coal plant that was built more than 50 years ago and now is retired or is at capacity could be retrofitted with a new coal plant, eliminating the need for an expensive new plant.
This could make a big difference for the coal mining industry.
The coal industry’s carbon emissions have dropped by more than 5%, or about 9 billion metric tons, since 2000, according the Carbon Monitor.
It also represents a significant cost savings for the mining industry, according for instance to a recent report from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Trump has also taken aim at the coal trade, which he has claimed is a big tax on American workers.
This is one of the ways he can try to shift the focus of his administration away from the coal industries.
In February, he signed an executive order calling for a carbon tax of 15% on all imports from China.
Trump’s order also would require coal companies to provide an environmental impact statement for any new coal-fired plants.
In addition, Trump has said that he wants to “clean up” coal, including a proposal to ban the production of methane gas, which is a potent greenhouse gas.
